Senior Lunch Cafe & Monthly Menu
SENIOR LUNCH CAFÉ
We are home to our area’s senior lunch program, providing a hot and nutritious lunch Monday through Friday, 11am-1pm, for adults age 60+. We provide much more than a meal--our program offers older adults vital camaraderie and socialization opportunities that reduce isolation and increase the ability to live independently. A donation of $3.00 per meal is suggested.
Funding (in whole/part) for this publication is provided through an award from Age Options through grants from the Illinois Department of Aging and/or Administration for Community Living, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services under Title III of the Older Americans Act.
