This is an important message regarding our Community Café sites.
As a precaution to help prevent the spread of coronavirus (covid-19) among older adults, many of the venues that host our cafes have decided to close their facilities or, cancel or curtail activities. Others have been requested closed to by order of the state.
As a result, Ethos will not be able to serve meals at those locations for the foreseeable future however, older adults may still visit many Community Cafe sites and pick up a “Grab & Go” meal, to be consumed where they wish.
Below is a list of our Community Cafe sites and and their current status. While most community cafes are open from 10:00 am-1:00 pm, meals are generally available for pick up from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
In the meantime, we wanted to let you know that some older adults may qualify to receive home delivered meals. If you, or someone you know, is 60 or older, and is interested in receiving meals on wheels, please call 617-477-6606 or visit www.ethocare.org.

Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, Ethos is experiencing increased demand for Meals on Wheels and Community Cafe programs. More and more older adults are heeding public health warnings and remaining in their homes as much as possible. The hot, nutritious meals that Ethos provides has become a critical lifeline for so many in our community. While we expect legislation to increase funding for this program, we have an immediate need for unrestricted funds to bridge the gap.
Please help Ethos and the seniors we serve, by making a donation today.
