All meal sites have returned to group dining!

Senior Meals are for all in the community ages 60 and better and guests. These delicious lunches are freshly prepared each day at Spectrum’s cooking kitchen by the loving hands of our chefs. A nutritious lunch and friendship enhances physical and mental well-being.

Meals are planned by our registered dietician to meet nutrition needs. Each meal is low sodium and contains at least 1/3 of seniors Dietary Reference Intake (DRI) including fruits and vegetables high in Vitamins C and A.

Sign-up! An annual registration is required along with an advanced reservation at the meal site. For each meal a $4 contribution is requested, but no eligible senior will be denied a meal due to an inability to give. Any amount is greatly appreciated. Meal tickets (good for 10 meals) are available at the meal site for $35. These never expire and are accepted at all Spectrum Meal Sites. Guests under 60 are welcome to join for a $14 flat fee.

Meet & Eat

(group dining at meal sites)

Let us serve you! Restaurant-style on plates, sit and enjoy your meal together. The goal of Spectrum Senior Meals is to reduce hunger and food insecurity, promote and support socialization, and to delay onset of adverse health conditions. Your diet can have an impact on the progression of Alzheimer's Disease according to this new study. Meet new people and eat healthy with Spectrum Community Services!
