Multi-county nutrition program announces new executive director

Angie Logan

Long time social worker Angie Logan assumed the helm of Mid-America Nutrition Program as executive director on Sept. 20, 2017. Logan said she hopes to find ways to enrich the multi- county Meals on Wheels program by securing additional funding and working to create intergenerational relationships between the elders and school age youth.

“I am excited to join our program because I believe that we are the eyes and the ears of the homebound elderly thereby preventing premature admissions to nursing homes and undue emergency room visits,” Logan said.

She has worked in Kansas as a licensed master’s level social worker since 1999 and has worked in a variety of diverse settings. Throughout her career, she has engaged in policy, direct practice, research, teaching, grant writing and fundraising initiatives.

In her free time, Logan recently launched a fundraiser for the Lawrence Community Shelter, selling apparel and visual art with proceeds benefiting homeless youth.

Logan noted she has had a long term passion for serving disenfranchised populations. She said the Meals on Wheels program is akin to the friendly visitors programs of the late 1800s, which served to promote independence, social responsibility and a sense of community for those isolated in society.

Logan said she hopes to meet all of the nutrition program’s participants by visiting the 25 congregate meal sites and those who are homebound.
