Community Dining Sites
There’s nothing quite like sharing a meal with friends. Our Community Dining Sites are great places for eligible seniors to eat a nutritious lunch, chat with volunteers, and build relationships with their peers. Each location offers a monthly menu that’s designed to reflect cultural and community needs and preferences—and some even offer bonus activities—so there’s always something to look forward to.

Frequently Asked Questions
About Community Dining Sites
Nope! You are welcome to visit the Dining Site that’s most convenient for you during its hours of operation without signing up or filling out an application. Keep in mind that meals are served on a “first come, first served” basis, so you may want to show up early.
Although you don’t need to sign up to eat at the Dining Site, we do ask eligible seniors to fill out a Dining Site Registration Form when they arrive. We use this form to report to the government and receive funding for the program. Anyone who does NOT fill out the form will be asked to show proof of ID for similar government reporting purposes.
You can fill out the Dining Site Registration Form in advance online or download and print the document to bring with you. We will also have the form available at our Community Dining Sites to be filled out when you arrive.
Seniors who are 60 and older are eligible to dine at our Community Dining Sites for the suggested donation amount. Other individuals who are younger than 60 are also welcome to visit for a nominal fee. All contributions are used to offset the cost of the program.
Seniors over the age of 60 are invited to eat and participate at each Community Dining Site for a suggested donation amount of $3. Participants under the age of 60 will be asked for a suggested donation amount of $4. All contributions are used to offset the cost of the program.
About Community Dining Site Meals
Meals can vary from location to location, but all meals are planned by our Executive Chef and Registered Dietitian Nutritionist. Locations post their menus every month. You can click here to view a sample menu.
Our Community Dining Sites often have alternate meal options available if you can’t eat the main meal of the day. We are currently unable to accommodate specific food allergies.
