Centralizing the cooking and storing of food from a single, commercial-sized kitchen in Burnett County, as compared to renting from separate, inefficient kitchen spaces throughout Burnett County, will provide enough cost savings to eliminate the current wait list for the Meals on Wheels and Congregate Dining programs, as well as continue to serve the expected increase of those aging 60+ who may also be in need.
The ADRC of NW WI is in the process of creating partnerships with the owners of an existing, vacant space in Webster to make this need into a reality. These partnerships will allow a renovation project to create the kitchen and provide long-term use of the space.
Because there are no current grants available to support a renovation project, we are seeking donations from YOU, our very own community! Please consider helping us to renovate this space to allow us to better serve our elderly populations in this great need to stay safe, independent, and healthy!
Changes coming soon!!
These are donations that will be utilized for general operating expenses or for expenses that accompany specific events, programs and services to which there are not, or not enough, funding for. Examples may include event planning expenses such as food, decorations, and location. Or for equipment upgrades and maintenance or reimbursement to help our volunteers function to serve our elderly and disabled populations.
