Meals on Wheels of NMCAA COVID-19 Mitigation Plan
During this time of heightened concern and uncertainty around the spread of COVID-19, we are committed to the safety, health, and well-being of the seniors and families we service, our staff, and volunteers.
We are taking precautions at all levels of our organization and working with our staff and volunteers to practice recommendations from the CDC from which we have developed procedures.
We have received recommendations from the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) for COVID-19, and are implementing the following plan based on these recommendations:
1. Home-delivered clients are receiving frozen meals once weekly in our four county area. All homebound seniors are eligible for this service during the State of Michigan "Safe Shelter Order."
2. Congregate Dining has been suspended until further notice and replaced with curbside pick up in locations as possible:
Grand Traverse County: Weekly "Contactless Frozen Meal Packages" will resume in Spring 2022. Please contact the Senior Center Network for more information or to find out information on "Lunch Buddies" - contactless, cold lunches available at each active site. Phone: 231-922-4911.
Leelanau County: Weekly Curbside Meals are available at limited locations in Leelanau County. Please call the Leelanau Senior Center at 231-256-8121 to make a reservation or for more information.
Wexford County: Cadillac Senior Center, Harborview and Kirtland Terrace Congregate Site seniors are receiving meals, being delivered by building staff.
3. Staff is conducting friendly assurance/safety checks multiple times during the course of the week.
5. Suggested meal donations remains $3.00/meal.
Meals on Wheels of NMCAA is prepared to address the challenges presented in the coming months both strategically and with the best interests of our seniors and all of our staff and volunteers in mind.
