The Hendricks Senior Dining Center provides nutritious meals for senior citizens both at the dinning center and via Meals on Wheels, serving and delivering meals five days a week for under five dollars per meal.
“Attendance has been going down all winter,” said Ellen VanErdewyk, one of the cooks at the Dining Center. VanErdewyk said Hendricks is not alone in this, other Senior Dining Centers are also seeing lower attendance numbers and serving fewer meals.
In an effort to attract more clients, Hendricks Senior Dining is using a donation received from a local organization to offset dining costs on the third Tuesday of the month for the next few months.
