Since the start of the year the Christian County Senior Citizens Center hasn't been able to provide lunches on Wednesdays because of the state's lack of funding. Gerry Mahr, Director of the Senior Center, and Judy Gates, Supervisor for Meals on Wheels of CEFS, said this impacts their members and participants because many rely on their lunches to eat, and often times, if they don't eat at the Senior Center, they may not eat at all. Mahr and Gates said it also doesn’t just keep the participants from eating, but also socializing.
Mahr said the Senior Center has ideas in mind to help bring back the lunches, but they need a lot of help from the community as well. He said the senior center is looking for food or monetary donations that could allow them to bring back lunches on Wednesdays.
