The kitchen is open. . . Long Prairie Senior Center to begin serving lunches
by Karin L. Nauber
Meals on Wheels is a great program offered in Todd County.
The only thing is, it doesn’t deliver lunches on Thursdays in Long Prairie because the program delivers evening meals on that day.
Jodi Dixon, who is the site manager at the Long Prairie Senior Center, has been working on getting their kitchen licensed for about two and a half years so that she can make and serve meals on Thursdays to fill the gap.
Cooking is right up Dixon’s alley. She used to own a restaurant in Forest Lake.
“There is a strong need for this. It will be open for the whole community,” said Dixon of the endeavor which will begin October 31.
The homemade meals will be served on Thursdays from noon until 1:30 p.m. or while supplies last.
Dixon encourages everyone to come in early and stay late for fellowship, games and other fun activities to share with friends. . . .
