Congregate Meals

Congregate meal sites such as senior centers are congregate settings where a nutritious lunch is served on weekdays to individuals age 60 or older.

At Senior Centers, people come together to enjoy a meal, meet and talk with friends, participate in health programs, and find out about services.

Some Senior Centers have transportation available from your home to the center.
