Meals on Wheels received a big check to help the nonprofit continue to feed those in need.
In honor of Bella's Italian restaurant’s two-year anniversary, it is helping out one of its favorite charities. Thursday afternoon, the restaurant presented Meals on Wheels with a $1,400 check.
The money was raised by donating a portion of its proceeds and matching any outside donations dollar for dollar.
"Meals on Wheels is just such a great organization in Charlottesville. One-hundred percent of the proceeds goes to helping feed the needy inside Charlottesville,” said Douglas Muir, Bella’s owner.
Bella's hopes to increase the donation to Meals on Wheels next year.
