Senior Center Meals Continue; Future Unknown

The Bond County Senior Center

While meals are still being served at the Bond County Senior Center in January, and Meals On Wheels continues, the future of the meals programs is still unknown.

Funding from the state and federal governments continues to be the issue.

Anna Oestreich, director of the senior center, said they continue to seek definitive answers about how to continue in the New Year, but so far definitive answers have been unavailable. She said if the funding level remains the same, the center will have to continue the Meals on Wheels waiting list. Congregate meals should be able to continue.

Oestreich said the center has been able to continue services by paring down as much as possible. She said some attrition has reduced expenses.
