Our Congregate Meal program lets seniors 60 and over enjoy a weekday lunch at a local community venue. The program gives seniors in our region access to good nutrition and–just as importantly–a chance to socialize and share a meal with others. Lunches are served in community settings such as a senior centers, senior living facilities or places of worship. Seniors are asked to make a small 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. 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 1-800-852-7795.
