Our Dining Sites
Many senior centers and other sites at which we provide a hot meal to active seniors Monday-Friday have closed to the public. Some may be providing emergency transportation to medical appointments or medication delivery. Check with the center in your area about what services they may still be providing.

Meals are for seniors 60+ and their spouses. People under 60 are welcome, but will be charged for their meal. On your first visit, we will ask you for some information that we need in order to continue to provide meals and to help you access other services that you might find helpful. All your information is kept strictly confidential.
Why Attend These Meals
The meals help seniors to eat nutritiously without having to cook, and help to reduce the isolation many seniors who live alone feel. Special holidays are celebrated and speakers are occasionally brought in to talk about nutrition topics. The meals help to put some fun and social activities into your life.
How Are These Meals Funded
You are an important part of how we are able to provide these meals at senior centers. A portion of the meal is covered by state and federal funding, but approximately 40% of each meal’s cost has to be raised. Your voluntary donation helps us to continue these meals. If you can’t make a donation, you may still eat.
When your local school is closed due to inclement weather, our dining centers will also be closed. Pay attention to local media for news of weather-related school closures.
