The Preble County Council on Aging, 800 East St. Clair Street, Eaton, provides Congregate and Home Delivered Meals to senior citizens in Preble County. The purpose of a congregate meal, served at the Senior Center and at the Midway Restaurant in Lewisburg, is to promote health, to reduce risk of malnutrition, to improve nutritional status, to reduce social isolation, and to link older adults to community services. Space is available in the Congregate Meal program at the Preble County Senior Center, and we want you to join us for lunch. Lunch is available to individuals age 60 or older (spouse can be younger). There are no income requirements. Transportation to the Senior Center for lunch may be available. Please call the Senior Center Transportation Department at 937-456-4947 for details.
We also have a home-delivered meal program, which is planned to improve a consumer’s health through safe and nutritious meals served in a home setting. These meals are commonly referred to as Meals on Wheels. We currently need volunteer drivers to work three hours a day delivering meals to senior citizens, perhaps your neighbors, using your vehicle. You will receive mileage reimbursement. You will have a dedicated route, and you can work, one, two, or more days per week, or just one day per month. Meals are delivered Monday through Friday, except holidays.
If you would like to volunteer, or need more information, please call Ashley Bowers at the Senior Center at 937-456-4947 or 1-800-238-5146.
