A local organization will be able to provide free meals to senior community members thanks to another organization’s generosity.


The Cass County Council on Aging recently received a grant from The Pokagon Fund to help feed Dowagiac’s senior citizens.


The funds from this grant will be used to provide free hot meals daily to residents ages 60 and over. The meals will be distributed at Front Street Crossing, 227 S. Front St., by a “first come, first serve” basis Monday through Friday. Seniors who are not registered are asked to fill out a short form in order to verify their name and age.


According to COA director of community development Kelli Casey, the grant will provide Dowagiac seniors with roughly six months’ worth of free meals.
