Meal Service Company In D.C. Shuts Down

At the height of its service, Nutrition Inc. handed out more than 13,000 meals a day in D.C., Alexandria, and Montgomery and Prince George's counties. It had served the region since 1976.

This week, the vendor notified the D.C. Office on Aging and said it would stop providing the meals on June 6, citing financial difficulties.

The vendor's chief executive says the company's revenues fell sharply after it bought a large warehouse in Landover. The executive also says many employees have already been laid off, and the company may have to file for bankruptcy.

Meanwhile, city officials in the District say they're trying to find other vendors who can help fill the void.
