Grafton Cares has announced recent changes in its Meals On Wheels program, which serves qualifying residents of Athens and Grafton.
The chefs at Valley Cares in Townshend are now providing the meals. On Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, one hot meal and one re-heat meal is delivered. No meal is available for Sunday.
These are complete meals: an entree, a vegetable, a starch, milk, bread and dessert. They are packaged in containers that can be put in the oven or microwave.
A person may be eligible if he or she is 60 years or older and has a temporary or permanent incapacity due to illness or advancing age. Income is not a factor. A person can also qualify if they are nutritionally at risk and cannot always purchase adequate food or cannot prepare a meal.
We suggest a small donation for the meals, but it is not required for service.
If you think you qualify or know someone who does, call Chuck Dickison at 843-2307.
