Stanislaus County supervisor critical of senior meal provider

Seniors never should go hungry because administrators lose track of how much money they’re spending. That message came through loud and clear Tuesday as Stanislaus County supervisors scolded their Area Agency on Aging, which oversees contractor-run Meals on Wheels and senior group lunches. “The most vulnerable people in the community relied on us for food,” said Bill O’Brien, chairman of the Board of Supervisors. He referred to a near disaster this spring, when meals were sharply reduced as demand swelled because the agency and its nonprofit contractor since 2006, the Howard Training Center, fell asleep at the switch.
