WHAT IS CONGREGATE LUNCH? Congregate lunch is a daily hot meal served in the Senior Center Cafeteria each Monday - Friday. Seating begins at 11:45 a.m. and lunch is served at noon. The nutritionally balanced meals are created in accordance with the federal nutrition program and include a hot main course, fruit and vegetable, dairy and juice and sometimes even a dessert!
WHO IS ELIGIBLE? DO I HAVE TO FILL OUT A FORM? Anyone age 60+ is eligible! There are no residency or income requirements. All participants (including current and returning participants) must fill out a Form 5 prior to starting. The Form 5 is a requirement of the Federal Nutrition Program - the program won’t be funded if we don’t comply with the necessary paperwork.
HOW DO I REGISTER? Participants may register to participate in as few or as many lunches as desired each month. Reservations must be made prior to 11:45 a.m. the day before each lunch (or on Friday for Monday’s lunch). You may register for up to one-week’s worth of lunches at a time. To register for future lunches, call the office at 860-665-8778 or register for upcoming lunches in person at the Center. Monthly menus are provided.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST? There is a $3.00 per meal suggested donation to help the Community Renewal Team defray costs. Donations are voluntary and anonymous.
