Providing Essential Needs in Recovery: Grant for Meals

TROSA provides the time, tools, and resources to help men and women rebuild their lives. Keeping all of our services cost-free allows residents to concentrate on what matters most: Long-term recovery from substance use disorder. TROSA is able to provide cost-free essential services thanks to donations and grants from individuals, corporations, foundations, and public support. Meals are included as part of our residents’ daily care, and we provide more than 400,000 meals each year thanks to this generous support. We recently received a new grant towards this essential service from Food Lion Feeds Charitable Foundation and are proud to share this support below:

TROSA Receives Donation from Food Lion Feeds Charitable Foundation

TROSA has received $2,000 from the Food Lion Feeds Charitable Foundation. TROSA will use the gift to feed its program participants as they participate in substance use treatment.

“Good nutrition is important for substance use recovery because it helps the mind and body recover from the damaging effects of substance abuse. Thanks to the Food Lion Feeds Charitable Foundation gift, TROSA will continue to provide the nourishment needed for its program participants to embark on the path of recovery,” said Keith Artin, TROSA’s President and CEO.

TROSA is an innovative, multi-year residential program that empowers people with substance use disorders to be productive, recovering individuals by providing comprehensive treatment, experiential vocational training, education, and continuing care. This gift from the Food Lion Feeds Charitable Foundation will help provide resident meals, a necessary program service and vital part of TROSA’s cost-free treatment for men and women with substance use disorders.
