The Congregate Nutrition Services Program helps meet the complex nutritional needs of older persons who do not normally eat adequately by providing nutritionally sound and satisfying meals in a setting of camaraderie, friendship and fun. Each meal served contains at least one-third the Recommended Daily Allowances as established by the Food & Nutrition Board of the Academy of Sciences.
Friends congregate with friends, talk about events of the day, laugh at jokes, or just relax with a book.
The Senior Center's congregate meals don't stop there; kids of all ages are invited! For many non-seniors, the Seniors Hospitality Center of Boundary County isn't the place to go because it's the nice thing to do... it's the place to go because the food is good, the stories are great and because it's the best place in the world to hear the most amazing true stories ever told! The Seniors Hospitality Center boasts such great lunches at noon sharp every Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday. Reservations are required; to make yours, call our service number by 10 a.m. on the morning you'd like to partake.
