Free frozen meals for Crow Wing County seniors age 60 and older will be distributed in the parking lot of the Deerwood Auditorium located at 23770 Forest Road on Monday, Oct. 17, from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m. by Catholic Charities of the Diocese of St. Cloud’s Senior Dining program.
During this drive-through, no-contact distribution, seniors will receive pre-packaged bags of 10 frozen meals. Each senior may receive up to 30 meals in a month. The meals are healthy and nutritious and meet one third of the recommended daily dietary allowance for seniors. They are packaged in microwave and oven safe containers and are easy to heat and eat. There is no fee for the meals; however, contributions are accepted.
The program is partially funded under a contract with the Central Minnesota Council on Aging as part of the Older Americans Act and administered by Catholic Charities of the Diocese of Saint Cloud. For more information, contact CRMC Social Worker Kari Lee Pietz at 218-545-5361.
