Congregate Meal Sites per County
Congregate sites are located at Senior Centers and other community sites in our eight-county area. Theses offer a hot mid-day meal during weekdays to any person over age 60. There is no cost as this is a Title III program, although participants are encouraged to donate what they can. The philosophy is based on the Older Americans Act which intends to improve the nutrition and health of older adults.
