Marion Senior Center cook quits

Resignations of both cooks left Marion Senior Center with no one to prepare meals April 17 for 25 Meals on Wheels recipients and 50 seniors who visit the center for lunch, site manager Janet Bryant said.

“We sent frozen meals out,” she said. “It wasn’t the best thing, but it was all we could do.”

A retired cook from Hillsboro has handled temporary food duties since Friday, but that came with its own challenges, Bryant said.

“That’s hard, even though she’s experienced,” she said. “She’s coming into a new place and doesn’t know the menu, or the order didn’t get sent in. We’re working under a handicap.”

Those interested in the position, which is 5½ hours a week at minimum wage, can contact the North-Central Flint Hills Area on Aging at 785-776-9294.
