The congregate dining program that had been providing meals through cash/vouchers, at a Lindstrom restaurant, may be replaced soon, according to a spokesperson for senior services through Catholic Charities, St. Cloud Diocese. Ruth Huntzinger tells the Press the organization is negotiating with a local establishment “to see if this will be a good fit,” and there should be something to announce soon. She wasn’t sure if the program will be back in 2014 or if it will not be until 2015. The Catholic Charities program, (St. Cloud Diocese for this region) fed 32 people utilizing the former meal site at the Swedish Inn, Lindstrom for a total of 539 meals in 2013, she reports.
