Home Delivered Meals are available for homebound seniors aged 60 or older in the Cashiers area of Jackson County who are unable to prepare a meal because of age, medical condition, or other disability, and who have no one available to prepare meals for them. Liquid Supplements are available for seniors aged 60 or older with a doctor's prescription. Call Karen Davis at 586-8562 for eligibility requirements for Home Delivered Meals and Liquid Supplements.

A route consists of no more than 15 stops, and delivery is completed between 10:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Donations: A portion of the funding is provided by the U. S. government under the Older Americans Act of 1965. All other monies are provided through donations frm citizens, churches, and civic organizations. Donations are accepted at the Department On Aging office at 59 Central Street in Sylva, or may be mailed in to P O Box 596, Sylva, NC 28779.
