FAIRFIELD — After a number of cuts to the Meals on Wheels Solano County program due to lack of funding, the program once again needs to cut services – this time to the Fairfield Senior Center location, effective the week of Nov. 4.
The news was announced Thursday by Cathy Hall, executive director of Meals on Wheels Solano County.
Beginning the week of Nov. 4 congregate hot meal service at the center will be cut by one day and will serve hot meals on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays. The center is closed on Fridays.
This joins other cuts to its congregate service throughout Solano County: Rio Vista was cut from five days to two days; Dixon, Benicia, Vallejo Marin Towers and Suisun City were cut by two days, and the McBride Senior Center in Vacaville lost one day. The largest senior center in the county, Florence Douglas in Vallejo, has been spared cuts.
The cuts are due to lack of and delayed funding from the federal government along with a decline in client contributions. The home delivery service has not been effected yet.
