Is the Senior Center, which serves Meals on Wheels, allowed to give away the leftover food?
It depends. If you're referring to the bread that several bakeries donate to Douglas County Senior Services, the answer is yes. But if you're referring to the home-delivered meals or the lunches served at the center, 745 Vt., the answer is no.
"Once food is prepared, it's to be consumed on the premises," said Jessie Ann Lusher, executive director of the senior center.
If you know of someone who's giving away food prepared at the center, Lusher asked that you contact the manager of the meals program, 842-0543.
