Richie Kawalcszyk

If anyone walking the south sidewalk of Onamia’s Main Street on a given weekday wonders why there are orange cones a car-length apart in front of the local Senior Center, wonder no more. The space is reserved a few hours per day for the volunteer drivers for the local “Meals on Wheels” program to pick up their goods and deliver food to those in need. Pictured above is Richie Kawalcszyk, who dutifully sets those cones and the sign each day. Meals, are funded partially by a contract with the Central Minnesota Council of Aging as part of the Older Americans Act and the service is administered by Catholic Charities of the Diocese of St. Cloud. Those over 60 years of age are eligible to use this service for between $4.25 and $8 per meal. Guests under 60 may pay $8 for a meal at the site. Either sign up for a meal delivered to your residence in the Onamia area by calling (320) 532-3885 from 10 a.m. – 1 p.m., or dine in weekdays between 11 a.m. and noon at the Onamia Senior Center located on Main Street, Onamia.
