Senior citizens who rely on getting a free lunch at the Bend Senior Center will have to travel a bit further north for the meal. It's a product of budget cuts. The Senior Lunch Program is moving from the Bend Senior Center to Bend's Community Center in mid-August. Bend Community Center Director Taffy Gleeson says they welcome the seniors; as it is a way to leverage their ability to feed people with their ability to feed the growing population.  Organizers at the Senior Center say splitting up services gives every non-profit the chance to specialize in their area, and it helps the different organizations use their budgets more economically. Gleeson says they plan to serve lunch to up to 100 Seniors each day. Bend's Community Center is located on Northeast Fifth Street, just north of Greenwood.
