Meals on Wheels Program Holding Fundraiser

The Meals on Wheels program, which serves about 900 people in Yakima, is trying to deal with a $26,000 federal funding cut this year.

Director Debbie Sugden tells KIT News, “That means 4,000 less meals for home delivery, which equals about 11 people for the year.”

Sugden says the program is doing everything possible to raise enough money to fill the gap left by the cut. She says everyone is being served, but if the money cannot be made up service cuts are possible.

The program is holding a spaghetti feed fundraiser May 16 at the Southeast Community Center from 4:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Tickets are available at the door. It is one of a number of fundraisers the program plans throughout the year.

You can donate to the program as well at mealsonwheelsyakima.com.
