Senior Dining

Senior Dining is a time for older adults to share a meal while enjoying the company of one another in a common setting. Senior Dining provides hot, well-balanced meals for individuals 60 years of age and older and their spouse of any age. These menus have been prepared by a licensed registered dietitian to ensure good nutrition guidelines. In addition to nutritious meals, your Senior Dining site provides:

  • Information about community senior services and programs

  • Social opportunities and interaction

  • Helpful health information and services

  • Connection with friendly, people who care about you

  • Volunteer opportunities and ways for you to share your talents and skills
