CIEDC senior programs new and improved in Mason County          Send a link to a friend

[FEB. 3, 2007]  Every month, CIEDC provides over 4,000 meals to seniors in Mason and Logan counties. Beginning Feb. 14, seniors age 60 or older have a new option for receiving meal service from CIEDC.

Beginning Feb. 16, CIEDC will begin a collaboration with Just Like Home restaurant, located at 200 N. Adams in Manito. The new partnership allows seniors who are signed up through the CIEDC Senior Nutrition Program to receive meals at the restaurant for a $3 suggested meal donation. No individual is ever denied service, but the suggested donation helps defray costs. Meals will also be delivered to the following areas for the same cost: Manito, Forest City, Goofy Ridge, Topeka and Buzzville.

The program receives partial funding from Area Agency on Aging of Lincolnland and the Mason County Board but requires community support and program income to run. A March 31 fundraiser, "Cheeseburger in Paradise," is currently being planned to raise funds.

Interested meal program participants are invited to sign up for the service and meet the senior nutrition staff on Feb. 14, 15 and 16 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Staff will be available to register new participants and greet current participants interested in learning more about this new option. All who sign up or inquire about the program will receive a free gift.

CIEDC is a Community Action agency serving seniors and low-income residents through a variety of program in Logan, Mason, Menard, Fulton, DeWitt and Piatt counties. For more information, visit
