Congregate Dining

Congregate DiningDon't eat by yourself. Join us for lunch! We do the cooking and washing up while you enjoy your meal. Our Congregate Dining program gives Seniors and adults with disabilities the opportunity to enjoy a hot meal and socialize with others.

Congregate dining is more than just a meal. It's also a place where you can take part in fun activities. After your meal you can join in one of our discussion groups or play a game of pinochle, bridge, dominos or bingo. You can also sign up for any of the bus trips that take place throughout the year.
