Farmers’ markets are growing across the state and continue to be an important source of fresh fruit, vegetables, meat, dairy and other value added agricultural products from small towns to large metropolitan areas. In 2019, 57 farmers’ markets were registered with the Kansas Department of Agriculture’s Central Registration of Farmers’ Markets.

To support Kansas’ farmer’s markets, we are pleased to offer six workshops throughout the state.

     One of the major sources of support for the area Senior Citizen population is our Mitchell County Senior Centers.  With funding support from the Mitchell County Commissioners, through the County Senior Mill Levy voted on by the citizens of Mitchell County, and at the direction of the Mitchell County Council on Aging, these Centers provide meals, socialization, and activities that benefit not only the Senior population, but also the caretakers and relatives/friends of these individuals.  We all are grateful to the voters for providing this valuable resource. 

     Three of the Centers operate five days a week, serving “Friendship Meals” each day during the lunch hour for a suggested donation of $3.50 for those over 60 years of age, with a price of $5.25 for all others.  The meals are open to the public, and can be obtained by calling the Center one day in advance.  These Centers are typically open each day from 9:00 AM until 1:00 PM, with the meal being served in the 11:30 – 12:00 time slot depending on the location.  The Glen Elder Senior Center and Nutrition Site is the cooking site for all three of these Centers, with Ms. Donna Brohman serving in the role as head cook.  The meals for the other Centers are delivered from the Glen Elder site.  These three Centers include:

  1.  Beloit Senior Center (785-738-5802), with Debbie Raymer serving as Center Manager
  2. Cawker City Senior Center (785-781-4763), (manager position currently open)
  3. Glen Elder Senior Center (785-545-3444), with Anna Sears serving as Center Manager

     The Tipton Senior Center operates out of the Tipton Community Center (785-373-5675), and serves meals three days a week (Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday), also delivered from the Glen Elder Nutrition Site.  Annette Muths serves as the Center Manager for this site.  The Seniors in the Hunter area eat at the Hunter Community Center every Wednesday, with the meal provided by the Hunter Café.  Local volunteer Mary Kralicek (785-529-2180) works with the Hunter Café staff to get set up for this event.

     Each of these Centers is supported by a dedicated group of volunteers who help prepare the facilities for the meal each day.  Their services are vital to the success of the operation.  The Centers also provide more than just meals, with such activities as morning and/or afternoon coffee clubs, card playing, bingo, monthly potluck birthday meals, Medicare workshops, computer/smart phone workshops, etc.  Call the Center to find out what activities are found at the particular Center of your choice.  All sites are open to everyone, not just to those living in that locale. 

     The Mitchell County Centers operate in conjunction with the North Central – Flint Hills Area Agency on Aging, headquartered in Manhattan.  This Area Agency serves an 18-County region, stretching from Lyon County (Emporia) on the southeast to Jewell County (Mankato) in the northwest.  NC-FHAAA served a total of 494,141 meals in the 18-county region in the past year, including 255,877 home delivered “Meals on Wheels”.   Mitchell County served their fair share as well, serving approximately 17,250 meals during the year, including nearly 8,000 of the home-delivered nutritious packages.  Frozen meals are also available, especially for evenings, weekends, and weather-event days when the Centers are not open.  Whether being served at the Center, or by the Meals-On-Wheels volunteer, those participating in the meals program are guaranteed to have vitally important individual social contact each time.  The value of that contact cannot be overstated, and is one of the most important features of the meal programs. 

     You are all welcome to stop by any of our Centers, and see what each one has to offer.  Don’t hesitate to phone a day in advance and share in the meal program for the next day.  Remember, the Centers are here for YOU, and we urge you to take advantage of all the activities they provide.  They are just one more reason why it is to your advantage to live in Mitchell County.  See you at your local Senior Center.
