Community Dining Programs

Food and Friendship for Older Adults

The Area Agency on Aging 1-B  supports senior dining programs throughout the region that provide weekday lunches for seniors who are 60 and older. Programs are usually held in community settings such as senior centers, senior living facilities or churches. Seniors are asked to make a voluntary donation for the meal to help offset the cost. Spouses of those 60 and older can also participate in the program, regardless of their age.

Senior dining programs have many benefits other than providing a meal and good nutrition. These include getting out, socializing, and even having participants volunteer their own time. Senior dining programs are a great way to combat loneliness and make new friends.

Program times vary by location. For a complete list of congregate meal programs in your community, contact the Area Agency on Aging 1-B at (800) 852-7795.


An important update related to the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak:

Many of our congregate meal sites are temporarily closed. Please call ahead to see if a community dining site is offering on-site meals and what safety precautions are being taken and should be observed. Meal pickup is being offered as an alternative at many locations for those 60 and older. See below for locations. Most sites require you to reserve a meal 24 hours in advance.
