Program Overview

Seniors and disabled individuals now have an opportunity to gather together and enjoy a healthy and nutritious meal through the Congregate Meals Program. With the goals of reducing senior isolation and promoting independence, this program provides thousands of meals to seniors and children in order to have an intergenerational “sit down” fellowship style lunch at one of three locations: Edwards, Fannie Jackson, or Terry Service Neighborhood Service Center.
