Thanks to the Jasper County Board of Supervisors for approving wage increases for congregate meals head cook and second cook. Due to the virus home-delivered meals have significantly increased. Currently, about 300 meals are home-delivered daily in Jasper County with a few still eating on site.

For more information about the congregate meals program, you can contact Kelly VanManen at 641-792-7102. Kelly and her staff are providing a great service for Jasper County Senior citizens. Without such a program, many receiving home-delivered meals might be in a nursing home.
