Food & Nutrition

§ Communal Luncheons

A federally funded program of congregate meals for people 60 years of age or older.  They are offered at noon on varying days throughout the state.  Residents of all towns are welcome at all sites, not just the one in their town.

Reservations need to be made at least 24 hours in advance so the site can prepare enough meals.  Call the site manager to make reservations.  There is no fee, but a suggested donation is appreciated and is used to provide additional meals and services.
