Congregate Sites | Copper Shores Meals on Wheels

One of Copper Shores Meals on Wheels signature programs is our Congregate Meal Program, also known as Congregate Sites. We hope you’ll consider joining us for a home cooked meal and friendship.


Anyone can attend a Congregate Site. Those over 60 years of age are especially encouraged to attend. 


A group of seniors comes together to enjoy a nutritious meal and great company.


Because you will absolutely love it! Seriously. This is a great opportunity to have a fresh, nutritious meal made for you to enjoy with a group of your friends. Below are nine great reasons to participate.

Nine Reasons to Visit a Congregate Site

  1. Your new best friend might be there waiting for you! These meals are a great place to meet others and socialize. 
  2. Coming together every day for a meal is enjoyable, and for some, the group becomes like family!
  3. Many seniors who regularly attend keep an eye on one another and become concerned when someone is ill or going through a difficult time. Congregate Sites are a warm and caring community. 
  4. Some seniors get tired of cooking for themselves and love the variety of the meals provided each week. If you’re wondering what the meals look like, check out our latest menu
  5. The perfect amount of food. Some seniors have a hard time cooking for one. Often fresh produce goes bad before it’s eaten or one simply gets tired of eating the same meal of leftovers because it’s hard to adjust recipes for one person. 
  6. The meals are tasty and filling. They’re made from scratch by our caring chefs in Hancock and Calumet kitchens!
  7. It’s an affordable way to eat healthy.
  8. By having a daily event, it’s an encouragement to get out of the house, even if you don’t feel like going that day. Once you’re out of the house, you’ll be glad you went! 
  9. Attending a Congregate Site helps keep you active and moving – a key component for brain and body health!
