Senior centers to distribute food

Marion Senior Center will distribute U.S. Department of Agriculture food commodities from 12:30 to 4 p.m. June 15 and 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Monday through Friday starting June 18.

Commodities are available to people meeting income guidelines. The maximum income for a one-person household to receive commodities is $1,211 per month. That increases to $1,640 for a household of two, $2,069 for three, $2,498 for four, and by $429 for each additional family member.

Other senior centers will distribute commodities on their own schedules as long as supplies last. To find out where commodities are available, call Marion County Department on Aging at (620) 382-3580.
