What delivery services are there for nutritional meals for elderly 1SPRINGFIELD - State Senators Andy Manar (D-Bunker Hill) and Steve McClure (R-Springfield) are issuing an urgent call to action for Central Illinois residents to fill the Area Agency on Aging for Lincolnland’s (AgeLinc) volunteer shortage.

AgeLinc needs volunteers to assist with meal preparation and delivery for seniors in multiple cities, as well as help to package meals for delivery at the Senior Services of Central Illinois meal preparation site.

There is currently a waitlist of 244 seniors who need meals delivered to their homes and not enough volunteers to make the deliveries. The service area most in need encompasses Springfield, Lincoln, Jacksonville, Taylorville and Litchfield and all areas in between.
