Deerfield residents understand that by becoming the first Meals on Wheels route sponsor in Buncombe County, they help alleviate hunger, increase nutrition, decrease loneliness, and keep the community’s homebound seniors living independently at home where they want to be! Our residents deliver meals 5 days a week without fail, and have been doing so for a number of years. They have donated over $6,000 to cover the cost of food to provide meals for their route. In the year 2000 following our first major expansion, our newly opened Community Center prepared its first meal—a Thanksgiving meal for Meals on Wheels! This year will be our 20th year serving Thanksgiving meals for all of Buncombe County’s Meals on Wheels seniors!
