We would like to send a huge THANK YOU to our County Commissioners for approving funding of $45,000 from the county’s senior citizens levy to keep two nutrition sites open.
CCCSO receives money from the Older Americans Act to feed seniors in the county. The funds, administered by the state, are allocated in two categories, one for home delivered meals and one for congregate meals. A year ago we opened Riverview and Riverview East and anticipated 40-50 meals a day but have experienced a need for 70-80 meals a day, causing us to quickly utilize the funding set for congregate meals. These meals are sometimes the only meal a client receives for the day, and also provides socialization for clients that go down to the centers dining halls to eat.
We appreciate our Commissioners, and our Director, Mr. Holley who advocates for the Seniors of Cabell County.
