Meals on Wheels, administered by the Elderly Nutrition Program, is a nonprofit program that provides a daily nutritious meal for seniors. According to executive director Christi Skibbins, 82,000 meals were served throughout the county last year. Many seniors enjoyed the noontime meal at their local senior center, but nearly two-thirds of the meals were delivered to the frail, homebound elderly by volunteers.
