$1 donations could help meals continue

Following a $15,000 cut in federal funding last September, the Hood County Agency on Aging is taking another hit. An additional $33,000 in federal funding will be cut in October. Executive Director Mindy Hodges said there are no plans to cut back on senior citizen programming offered in Hood County. Instead, a creative solution will ask for $1 donations per meal. Some 74,000 meals were served last year.
