Seniors, if you want to participate in the Commodity Supplemental Food Program, you will need to call Debi (316-265-3665) and make an appointment between 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Wednesday, April 25, to register for the program before you go to the Marion Food Bank. This food program will be available in Marion County to persons age 60 and above who qualify by meeting income requirements. Distribution of these supplemental commodities will start in May. Once approved, you will receive a monthly box and will need to recertify in six months.

The birthday dinner is Wednesday, April 11, with Rachel Gfeller giving chair massages, Sonja Koslowsky playing the piano, and physician Randolph Whitely presenting a program. Dawn from “Angels” will give a program on neuropathy and pre-diabetes on Thursday, April 19.

Our center will celebrate Volunteer Week April 16-20. A special dinner honoring our own volunteers will be held Wednesday, April 18.

You really make our day when you stop in, visit a spell and have a cup of coffee with us. Where else can you get a good nutritious meal for $3.50 for age 60-plus and $5.25 for those age 59 and under. Call 620-983-2226 to make a reservation.

We deliver Meals on Wheels each week day, so if you are looking for a good, nutritious meal we are one phone call away.
