Fresh produce arrives weekly at the offices of the Council on Aging of Central Oregon. The fruits and veggies from Aloha Produce are then distributed under a USDA grant, with a percentage of the filled boxes marked for distribution in Sisters.

But not all of food boxes find homes.

The Council on Aging program launched in late May when 30 boxes were sent to Sisters Community Church for distribution. Each box weighs 30 pounds and contains, for example, potatoes, onions, carrots, celery, oranges, grapefruit, berries and other edibles.

If someone in your household is 60+, would you like a box of fresh produce?

If so, you can help keep this generous donation from going to waste. Simply use this Tollgate Village website to make a service request and our coordinator will call and arrange the pick up and delivery schedule that works for you.  Click here to start your request: Service Request

If you would like to volunteer to be a Tollgate area STARS (Sisters Transportation And Ride Share) driver or dispatcher, please contact us by email at Tollgate@agefriendlysisters.com.

The produce boxes are also available for pickup on Wednesdays between11:30 and 12:30
Sisters Community Church
1300 McKenzie Highway (Hwy 242) 
Sisters, 97759
 
Bring ID; a signature is required for pickup.
If all the boxes are not distributed on Wednesday, they will also be available on Thursdays between 11:30 and 12:30. STARS volunteers may be able to assist with delivery with some advance notice.
 
 

Grab N Go Meals

Take Home Meal Service is available Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays between noon and 12:30 p.m. at the Sisters Community Church, 1300 McKenzie Hwy.

To pick up one of these fully cooked meals, drive into the back parking lot at the church, and volunteers will bring a meal to-go to your car. Meals are available on a "first come, first serve" basis each day.

If you are unable to drive, Tollgate Village volunteers can help arrange meal delivery.

Senior Center Without Walls (SCWW)

SWCC is a non-denominational, California-based non-profit community outreach program offers activities, friendly conversation, and an assortment of classes and support groups on conference calls to elders nationwide who find it difficult to go to a community senior center.

A primary goal of SCWW is the inclusion of isolated individuals as valued members of a community. From the comfort of their own homes, participants connect to activities using their own telephones.

There is no fee for the participant, and an interested individual can sign up at any time during a three-month session.

Among the more than 60 weekly groups offered by SCWW are creative endeavors such as poetry writing, storytelling and improvisation; support groups for those suffering from vision loss, depression or anxiety; and discussions of philosophy, current events or unusual court cases.

Every Tuesday, callers listen to an interview with an expert on a particular health or safety issue and are invited to ask questions or talk about their related experiences. Friday special events include armchair travels, author interviews, a spelling bee and an annual talent show.

To explore more go to their website: covia.org/services/well-connected/. Or you may register by calling their toll-free number (877) 797-7299.
