      Dollie Mama hangs up her apron after 10 years cooking for folks in need

      EUGENE, Ore. - Almost every Wednesday for 10 years, Dollie Travis has cooked and served food to some of the community's most vulnerable members.

      A decade ago, Dollie made a different meal each Wednesday.

      That got too complicated, so she had people in the transitional mental health program vote on their six favorite meals.

      On the menu this week: chicken with peanut sauce, strawberry salad, fruit and cookies.

      But in two weeks, the 80-year-old says it'll be time to hang up her apron.

      "I'm an old lady. It's time to quit," she said. "This will be my third retirement - it's time to quit."
