The Wood County Beef Producers organization recently arranged for a steer to be donated to the Wood County Committee on Aging, Inc. (WCCOA), for use in meal production for the county's seven senior centers.
"The Beef Producers hope this can be an annual event," said Charles Thomas, president of the Wood County Beef Producers. "It is a great partnership for a worthy cause."
Angie Bradford, director of food service for the WCCOA, said the agency is very pleased "that the Beef Producers and donors thought of us. This will help an already tight annual budget. With numerous state and federal funding reductions on the Older American Act, the 900 pounds of beef will be put to good use."
WCCOA serves approximately 800 meals daily to the 60-plus population Monday through Friday. These lunch-time meals are delivered to home-bound older adults and to the seven senior centers throughout Wood County - in Bowling Green, Pemberville, Perrysburg, Rossford, North Baltimore, Walbridge and Wayne. These meals provide nourishment to those senior residents who may not have the resources otherwise, Bradford said.
For more information on services provided by WCCOA contact the Wood County Senior Center at 419-353-5661 or 1-800-367-4935.
The Wood County Beef Producers provides leadership to the beef industry in Wood County by providing and sponsoring educational programs, exploring management, production, and marketing techniques, and developing communication between consumers and producers.
