The Meals on Wheels Silver Cafe�at Wellesley and Nevada is closing its doors due to a lack of funding.
The restaurant offers nutritious food to seniors, who are asked to donate just three or four dollars a meal.
�"We had lost money on it all along, but our budget could sustain that in the past. We can't afford to keep it open now because it is more expensive," says Pam Aleida, director of the Greater Spokane County Meals on Wheels, which runs the program.
"Donations are down, and as an organization we're struggling to meet the need," she says.
The Silver Cafe will throw a farewell party, and serve its last�dinner on December 24th.
The twelve other Silver Cafes, located in senior homes and community centers, will remain open, and Meals on Wheels says there's no waiting list for those who need home delivered meals.
