Community Meals

Join us in creating community for seniors! Eating meals together helps connect communities and strengthen bonds among participants. It provides seniors with meaningful, yet natural, interactions: food provides its own topic of conversation, making it easier to interact with others. Sharing meals regularly can also decrease feelings of loneliness and depression.

People under 60 pay a modest fee for meals. For people over 60, there is usually a suggested donation of $3-5 for these events, but no one in this age group is ever turned away for lack of ability to pay.  If you wish to give a larger donation, it will gladly be accepted to support the meal program.
