[May 12, 2008]  Community Action Partnership of Central Illinois announced on Thursday that the senior nutrition program is expanding with the opening of another Mason County meal site, in Manito. Meals will be served to active seniors at the Forman Center beginning May 19. Meals will be available Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. unless a previous Forman Center event is scheduled.

Partial funding from the Area Agency on Aging for Lincolnland allows Community Action to provide the meals at a suggested donation of only $3 in order to encourage participation. No participant is denied for inability to make the suggested donation. The restaurant owner of the South 40 and Pour Farm, Sue Treat, has agreed to cater the meals.

"We are excited for this opportunity to work with Sue in order to better serve the seniors in the community," said Angie Jenkins, senior programs director. "We look forward to an active group in Manito, including any seniors over the age of 60 and their spouses."

Community Action Partnership staff will be at the Forman Center on May 19 from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Interested participants are encouraged to sign up in advance so that enough meals will be prepared. The first 15 participants who sign up will receive a free gift. To learn more or to sign up, contact Community Action at 217-732-2159, ext. 240 or 242.

Community Action Partnership of Central Illinois, formerly CIEDC, is a private, not-for-profit organization that serves six central Illinois counties through a variety of programs and services. For more information, visit
