No home-delivered meals on Wednesday, senior centers closed due to weather


With the winter storm warning issued through Wednesday evening, the Wood County Committee on Aging will not deliver home delivered meals on Wednesday.

This decision is made for the safety of seniors, the volunteers who deliver meals throughout Wood County and drivers, according to a Tuesday press release. A total of 27 routes are delivered Monday through Friday, serving more than 575 homebound seniors daily.

Earlier this week in anticipation of the storm, additional frozen and shelf-stable meals were delivered to home-delivered meal participants requesting a supplemental meal for this weather situation. Additionally, all home-delivered meal clients were provided two shelf-stable meals in October.

All home-delivered meal participants will receive a phone call from WCCOA on Wednesday morning to verify their safety and wellness.

While all Wood County seniors centers will be closed to the public on Wednesday, staff will be reporting for work.

Call the Wood County Committee on Aging at 419-353-5661 or 800-367-4935 for additional information.
