Sue Daugherty, director of Serving Our Seniors, said the number of medicines dispensed under the drug repository program more than tripled in the past year, and demand for home-delivered meals has risen as well.

The repository program dispenses unused pharmaceutical drugs — at a cost of $7.50 — to seniors who cannot afford to pay the full price for their medication.
