Senior center gives up commodities
Main Street Ministries will take over distribution of the U.S. Department of Agriculture commodities with the June order.
The Hillsboro Senior Center is currently responsible for the distribution and will continue to do so Friday, May 13, but the following month, volunteers at Main Street Ministries will handle the task.
One reason for the change, an official with Main?Street Ministries said, is because there were not enough volunteers at the center to pick up commodities at Council Grove and then bag the items.
For more information about eligibility or changes, call 620-947-3393.
