  • Meridian Senior Center: For individuals previously served by our Congregate (Senior) Dining Site, TCOA is willing to deliver meals to the Meridian Senior Center and have the meals distributed as a carryout to your vehicle. However, this service must be requested in advance by calling TCOA Community Nutrition Manager Tasha Stetler at 517.887.1393. As Tasha is in and out of the office, please leave a message and she will get back to you promptly. To confirm your eligibility as an individual age 60 and older, you will be required to provide your name and birthdate and answer a few questions to complete your reservation for the meals.
