HOT LUNCHES ARE SERVED DAILY AT 11:30Cooking Pan illustration

PLEASE SIGN IN BY 10:30 FOR SEATING

Lunches are provided by United Way Area Agency on Aging. Donations, in any amount, are appreciated but not required. This is a nutrition program and not something you may "show up" to occasionally. Regular participation is required to receive hot, congregate, meals.

The food items, drinks, flatware and cups that are provided by United Way Area Agency are the only items allowed in the dining room. NO EXCEPTIONS. Condiments are allowed as long as they are store bought and labeled.

No one under the age of 60 years of age (unless it is a resident) is allowed to be present during lunch or participate in any other activity held at the Center during business hours. This includes children.

Policy on Foods Taken Away from the Center
Participants receiving a congregate meal shall be allowed to take home fresh fruit, unopened cartons of fruit juice; wrapped cakes, cookies and snack cakes, individually wrapped portions of corn chips or potato chips. All other leftover foods shall be discarded at the end of the serving day.

**Take only one serving of milk, juice, fruit, snack cakes & cookies with your meal. If there are leftover items, after everyone is served, you may help yourself to one additional serving. The milk must be consumed at the center.

If you would like to purchase an additional meal after everyone is served, they are available for $3.73.

Hot lunches are ordered based on the number of people that support the center regularly and are served at 11:30, on a first come, first serve basis. The lunch tickets are limited to the number of meals ordered for any given day. Be sure to sign in daily by 10:30 to get yours before they're all gone. You must sign in and have a ticket to receive a meal. Please do not sign other people on the meal list unless they are in the building. We cannot hold meals for people who have a ticket and are not present at the time lunch is served. No lunches will be served after 12:00.

If, for some unforeseen reason, GA Foods is unable to provide food or the food is delivered and doesn't meet temperature requirements, we will provide a hot lunch from another source. Lunches will be provided, under these circumstances, to anyone signed up by 10:30 am.

**If you receive frozen meals at your apartment, you are not eligible to receive the hot congregate meals served at the Center Dining Room. (Based on guidelines of United Way Area Agency on Aging)
