On holidays such as Martin Luther King Day, when Douglas County Senior Services Center is closed and Meals on Wheels will not deliver, how do the people who rely on those services eat?

About 80 percent of the center's clients are capable, on an infrequent basis, of taking care of those needs themselves, said Kim Wittman, senior meals manager. If they are not, center employees will make arrangements or make sure the client has a frozen meal.

"We would never leave somebody without a meal over a weekend or a holiday," Wittman said.

She said the days on which meals would not be delivered were well-publicized on the center's meal calendar at the beginning of each month.
