Provide a summary of the project or program:
           The Morehouse Council on Aging provides the Meals on Wheels program for the Parish of Morehouse to eligible seniors(over 60)through its kitchen facility. The CoA has been doing the meals since 1984. It would like to replace a tilting skillet that has been in use since that time. It is a gas fired 30 quart skillet. It helps in producing over 200 meals a day 5 days a week including Congregate and Home Delivered meals. It is getting extremely hard to get replacement parts, and keep it operating. With no increases it has been hard to set aside enough to replace and have it installed. We have had several fundraisers to go toward its purchase.
The Council on Aging is the local agency for services to seniors in Morehouse Parish including Nutrition. We assist with Housing, In-Home services, Congregate services, Wellness and Fitness, and other outreach, informational, and assistance services.
