Changes to the Barron County Nutrition Program
The Aging and Disability Resource Center (ADRC) of Barron, Rusk and Washburn Counties remains committed to ensuring the safety of our customers, volunteers and staff. We follow the recommendations of Barron County Public Health. While we’ve really enjoyed serving in-person meals these past few months, there has been a rise in cases of COVID-19 in Barron County and across the state. Effective Monday, August 23rd, we will temporarily suspend the in-person elements of the Barron County Senior Nutrition Program and provide a Grab n’ Go option for weekday noon meals.
It is possible we may not be able to get certain food items from our vendors so the menu is always subject to change.
