Community Lunch at the Center

Lunch is served 4 days a week at noon. Join us for a well-balanced and hearty lunch for seniors prepared by our esteemable cook, Kate. Lunch includes salad, a main course, vegetable side and tempting dessert. We have vegetarian meals on occasion. And we offer takeout. The suggested donation is $4.50 but no one is turned away for lack of funds. You may purchase a 10-lunch punch card for $40. Join us in this community event where we have frequent parties and holiday celebrations.

We will pick you up at your door and bring you to lunch at noon. On Monday, Wednesday and Friday our “personality plus driver”, Joe will pick you up in our 10-passenger fully accessible van. Enjoy lunch and we will take you home again. There's no charge for the service. Granny's Attic has generously funded the program. Of course, you'll want to buy lunch when you get here ($4.50 for lunch). Call the Center at 206-463-5173 to schedule your ride. We will give you all the information when you call.
