Congregate Meals/Senior Meal Options Program
Senior Congregate Meals
In a congregate or group setting, healthy balanced meals are provided by qualified individuals in a friendly group atmosphere such as senior centers, senior housing, and other suitable locations. This provides opportunities for socialization and companionship – and helps to reduce hunger and food insecurity. Hot lunchtime meals are available at several locations throughout the Valley, with locations and days/times listed below.
