Gas price fallout

Posted By on Sat, Jul 5, 2008 at 6:40 AM

An Arkansas angle pops up in a New York Times story on the impact of high gas prices on services for old folks.

For many isolated older people, home delivery of meals provides not just nutrition but also regular contact with the outside world, said Elaine Eubank, president of CareLink, a nonprofit agency that serves elderly people in six counties in Arkansas, delivering 480,181 meals to 18,000 people last year. Because of gas prices, Ms. Eubank said, one center in Monroe County had closed its kitchen, and others were delivering frozen meals two days a week.
