• Homebound Meals for those that qualify
• 1-day advance notice is required to receive “Hot Meals”
Note: Encore Lifestyle & Enrichment Center will now remain OPEN when Tipton Community Schools are closed for inclement weather. This new policy, effective January 2015, will allow Encore to better serve our clients and make the Area Five home bound meals possible, even during winter weather.

Please call Area Five (not Encore) to request a home bound meal to their phone: 800-654-9421.
