What We Do

We provide services for our neighbors so that they may continue to live independently in their home. Services include “Meals in the Hills” home delivered meals program, in house dining, recreational activities, and transportation to medical appointments.

Known locally as “Mooresburg Community Center,” we are an organization committed to responding to issues of hunger and social isolation. We help people of our rural community live independent lives. The Mooresburg Community Association enriches peoples’ lives by providing meals and reducing isolation.

We encourage neighbors to lend each other nurturing support and create the feeling of an extended family.

Meals in the Hills

Volunteers deliver a plate of hot food to Mooresburg residents 5 days per week.  Here ‘s how  our volunteers are working to tackle the issues of hunger and social isolation in this region of Appalachia.  Each day, volunteers gather at  Mooresburg Community Association in order to mobilize  and deliver over 68 hot meals per day. As a result, people in Mooresburg are living better lives and enjoying the freedom to live independently and not make an unwanted move into a long term care facility.

Congregate Dining

Folks who are able to drive to Mooresburg Community Center enjoy a meal together 5 days per week. Kathleen, our dedicated cook, prepares each plate with loving care. It is a warm and welcoming environment where you are handed a hot plate of food when you walk in the door.  Everyone enjoys eating, laughing, socializing, making crafts, snacking, and learning something new on the computer.  Mooresburg Community Association also provides transportation to medical appointments.

Second Harvest Food Bank of Upper East Tennessee

Once per month, volunteers set up tables outside of Mooresburg Community Association in preparation for the arrival of a truck from Second Harvest Food Bank of Upper East Tennessee.  The driver transports food all the way from Kingsport, Tennessee. Volunteers set up an assembly line to take the food off of the truck and arrange the food in cardboard boxes. The food boxes are then handed to recipients who are lined up in their cars. A Mooresburg Community Association volunteer loads the food box into the car. 135-140 boxes are distributed to area families each month.
