Lewis County OFA

LOWVILLE- Lewis County Office for the Aging says the organization is planning to begin re-opening their senior nutrition meal sites around the county.

"We want to do this correct and safe from the get-go," Meals Coordinator Vicki Meyer told us.

"It will be one meal site at a time. Those opening dates will be listed in our May newsletter as far as locations and dates that they will officially go."

Although it's a promising step in the right direction, Meyer says the re-opening doesn't mean an automatic jump-start to the way seniors and visitors were used to things before COVID.

"Our seniors are so used to coming in, greeting their friends and the site staff and grabbing a cup of coffee and unfortunately that's probably not gonna happen. They'll be checked in at the door, which is where our volunteers are going to come into play for us."

Lewis County Office for the Aging is seeking volunteers to assist with the meal sites. Refer to the flyer below for more details:

In addition, there will be temperature checks and seating arrangements will be assigned and will vary based on each specific site, Meyer clarified.

Stay tuned, we'll have more updates in the coming weeks ahead. Listen to our latest on-air story with Vicki Meyer for more details:
