150 people went without hot meals Tuesday due to meals on wheels vandalism

Police are looking for suspects who damaged five Senior Resource Connection vehicles this past weekend. Each meals on wheels vehicle sustained about $600 damage and the program was unable to deliver meals to 150 citizens on Tuesday.

The vandalism happened while the food trucks were parked at the Senior Resource Connection’s Dayton location at 222 Salem Avenue. Police report that the suspects stole catalytic converters and damaged the oxygen sensors.

A spokesperson for the company says the vehicles deliver food to Greene, Champaign and other rural counties.

The same company is still recovering from a food truck that was stolen just before Christmas. If you would like to donate to Senior Resource Connection you can click the following link: Senior Resource Connection
