September 2020

 
 

 

September is National Senior Center month.

We’ve received many phone calls regarding the new meal program developed
by the Chester County Department of Aging.
See if this offer of nutritious meals interests you!

Weekly Cold and Frozen Meals available thru
The Chester County Department of Aging

Each week a combination of cold and frozen meals will be available to individuals, who prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, were taking part in the congregate noontime meal program offered by the Chester County Department of Aging . New individuals may also participate as long as they provide us with necessary information required by the Department of Aging.

Each week a meal participant is eligible to receive 2 cold meals and 3 frozen meals.  These meals are delivered to us every Tuesday and Thursday and available for pick up between 10:30am and 12pm on those days.

The cold lunch is a box lunch including a sandwich, cold vegetable or vegetable salad, and fruit. The frozen meal is similar to frozen meals you see in the grocery store. I’ve tried both and they are nutritious, tasty, and well-balanced meals.

The delivery we receive on Tuesday consist of one cold meal and one frozen meal, and one quart of milk for each participant who placed an order for meals that week. The Thursday delivery consists of one cold meal and two frozen meals also for each participant who had requested meals that week That’s a total of 5 meals each week that can be provided.

Following the previously established congregate meal program donation procedures, if a meal participant would like to make a donation toward the cost of the meal, donations will be accepted. 

Our weekly meal order is due to the Department of Aging by noon of Tuesday for the following week.

If you have any questions about the meals or procedure ordering them, please feel free to contact me. Since we are closed for activities, call the senior center (610-932-5244) and leave a message on my voice mail box or email me directly at jdmcleod@oxfordseniors.org.

Please continue to be safe!

Sad News: I’d like to mention the loss of a long-time volunteer and supporter of our center. Laura McKinney passed away on Tuesday, September 15th. She was Secretary of the Participants’ Council for many years. Laura will be missed and certainly not forgotten. Thoughts and prayers for her family.

Please continue to be safe!
