Carriers will take frozen meals on wheels to handful of county residents

Email

WILLMAR -- There are some elderly or disabled residents who live so far off the beaten path in rural Kandiyohi County that volunteer drivers with the local meals-on-wheels program are unable to drive there.

As a result, some of those vulnerable adults have gone without meals for days at a time.

"They are a small niche population, but they are a needy population," said Jay Kieft, family services director, during the county board meeting Tuesday.
