Meal program prices increase in Doniphan Co
01/19/2018

(KNZA)--The Doniphan County Commission has approved an increase in the price paid for meals prepared for the county’s Meals on Wheels program and county inmates.

Kitchen Director Judith Allen met with the Commission Tuesday to request the increase, saying the price of meals has not increased since 2008.

The Commission voted to increase the price paid for meals prepared for the Meals on Wheels program from $4.50 to $5.00 per meal, and for inmate meals from $3.00 to $3.50 per meal or from $9.00 per day to $10.50 per day.

The increase was effective as of January 16th.

In other business,  the Commission approved up to $2,500 from the liquor tax fund to pay the cost of a countywide school assembly on suicide prevention and alcohol and drug abstinence.

KANZA Mental Health will be holding the assembly, with guest speaker Kevin Hines speaking about his own recovery from mental illness and substance use.
