Senior nutrition centers in Illinois are at risk of closing

Send a link to a friend

To the editor:

Senior nutrition centers in Illinois are at risk of closing. My local center hasn't had a budget increase in over 10 years, while the cost of food, gasoline and utilities has gone through the roof.

What will the shut-ins do if the centers are no longer able to provide their home-delivered meals?

Please use whatever influence you might have in your community to help the nutrition centers in your area. There is no more basic a need than food.
