Meals program funding includes donations
Letters to the Editor
Grand Coulee Dam Senior Nutrition Program is a program funded primarily by Aging and Adult Care of Central Washington.
Two senior center sites are included in this program. They are Grand Coulee Senior Center and Coulee City Senior Center. Both sites provide meals for seniors, either in the senior centers (congregate) or home delivery (Meals on Wheels). Grand Coulee serves breakfast on Monday and Friday, supper on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. Coulee City serves lunch Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.
The suggested donation for seniors 60 and older is $3.25 per meal. The required donation for folks that are 59 and younger is $6.50 per meal.
Our funding received by AACCW is set in a budget that also includes fund raising and donations. A requirement for the program is to raise funds from government entities, city councils, business owners and individuals. We must solicit funds to be a success for our participating seniors that are not able to contribute.
Without our communities support the Senior Meals Program could not exist. All donations and contributions are greatly appreciated.
