Tri-County Office of Aging

LANSING, Mich. — As a provider of essential food and safety services for older adults, the Tri-County Office on Aging (TCOA) remains open with limited staff on-site to manage program logistics. Among other services, the Meals on Wheels home delivery program continues to operate with increased health and safety precautions in place.

While all TCOA Congregate Senior Dining sites are currently closed due to the risk of spreading COVID-19 through large group gatherings, individuals age 60 and over and their caregivers are eligible to participate in a food pick up opportunity at locations across the region in all three counties. Pickups will include packs of 7 frozen meals with fruit, bread and milk.

Meal pick up must be arranged in advance by calling Tasha Stetler at 517-887-1393 to schedule a pickup appointment. Callers will be asked to give their name, phone number, address and birthdate. The only qualification is to be over 60 years of age or providing primary care for someone age 60+. Please make sure you have a way to heat the meals, microwave is preferred. Special arrangements may be available to those that cannot heat the food, and for those unable to get to a pick up location.

For other food access questions or to address other needs, please call 211 or visit http://www.centralmichigan211.org/ [centralmichigan211.org].
