For Immediate Release - January 24, 2023
The Fitchburg Senior Center is committed to providing nutritious meals to participants who receive “meals on wheels” and those who dine at our facility. The recent news that Little John’s has discontinued their contract with Dane County was abrupt and disappointing. This decision directly affects our older adults as Little John’s was our caterer. In the short term, we are contacting local businesses to continue providing approximately 70 meals on a daily basis. We are most appreciative to Kwik Trip, Oasis Cafe, Benvenuto’s, the Great Dane and the Thirsty Goat for their quick willingness to provide hot meals for our participants. These businesses will be reimbursed through Dane County, our own Senior Center funds and donations. We are also securing canned and other packaged food for the meal program. Our hope is that Dane County will quickly secure a longer-term solution to serve Fitchburg and surrounding communities. At this time, we appreciate everyone’s patience as we work to continue to serve our client’s nutritional needs.
