Nutrition Program

Reinforcing our Commitment

With this initiative, our goal is to provide good tasting, nutritious lunches to our seniors.  Our lunch staff is one of the best around.  The staff and volunteers serve your meal at your seat and clean up.  These aren't your normal 'senior' meals!!  Lots of fellowship - come and give it a try.  If you are over age 60, we ask for a $3.00 donation.

Would you like to support our efforts?
