GRANGEVILLE Despite some rumors and a misleading letter in last week’s paper, Delores Kindall said, the Grangeville Senior Citizens Center meal program is up and running.
“We served 90 meals Monday, Sept. 25, and also completed the home deliveries,” she said.
Kindall is the bookkeeper for the nutrition programs for Grangeville, Cottonwood and Winchester. She said former cooks walked out Sept. 21 following a bookkeeping dispute.
“They wanted to turn over the bookkeeping to an accounting firm and have the cooks do the food paperwork for the government,” Kindall said. The senior center board, led by president Stan Modrell, disagreed.
Kindall said new cooks have been hired – Marla Hughes, Sherry Becker and Sue Crea – and it’s business as usual.
“Some people had received phone calls not to come out, or that they wouldn’t get home-delivered meals,” Kindall said. “That’s not true! We are still up and running.”
Grangeville is host to the senior meals Mondays and Fridays; Cottonwood on Tuesdays and Winchester on Wednesdays, all at noon.
