Safe and Sane Skagit met recently with Congressman Suzan DelBene's local representatives, Kaylee Galloway and Ben Studley about their concern over the need for background checks and federal legislation: HR-8 and HR1128. Another bill is in committee, HR569, which would protect victims from stocking violence. Another concern was whether the Center for Disease Control will once again be allowed to research and track gun violence.

Meals on Wheels - February 27, 2019

Over 25% of the people in Skagit County are over 60 years of age. Host Jerry Shackette interviews Renee Corcoran, Senior Program Coordinator at Skagit County Public Health who oversees the Skagit Senior Nutrition Program.

Corcoran shares the details of the "Meals on Wheels" program which delivers a daily meal to seniors who have difficulty leaving their home unassisted or preparing their own meals. The discussion also examines the food operations at the County Senior Centers and talks about how the entire program is funded and how volunteers are a critical part of the effort.

There’s another part of the story that reveals a part of the program that is almost as critical as providing the food. Seniors living alone can experience a personal sense of isolation that is often relieved by a delivery visit by the Meals on Wheels delivery driver.

Hear the details about this key piece of the Skagit County Food System and how you can play a part in making sure no Skagit County senior goes hungry.
