(Crystal City) The local Meals on Wheels program of Crystal City, Festus, Herculaneum, and Pevely areas is still going strong these days. A partnership between Aging Ahead and the Quad City Community Development Corporation has kept thing moving forward despite no new federal or state funds since 2006. Former State Senator Bill McKenna is a QCCDC board member. He says the program is still very dependent on volunteers.

McKenna says not only do they deliver hot meals provided by Fredericks Catering, there are also frozen meals too.

The Quad City Community Development Corporation is always looking for volunteers and donations.
