Senior Dining & Home Delivered Meals

Home Delivered Meals

Home delivered meals are for people age 60 or older who are homebound due to health reasons, and physically or emotionally unable to travel for a meal with others. It is for those who are unable to obtain food and prepare nutritious meals for themselves on a daily basis. Meals are delivered by our drivers, including a number of community volunteers who are concerned with the well-being of each participant.

Senior Dining Sites

The Senior Dining Sites program provides hot, nutritious, and well-balanced meals as well as the opportunity to meet new friends and take part in recreational activities like cards, bingo, and exercise classes. Any person age 60 or older, regardless of income, and a spouse of any age can participate.

All meals must be reserved at least one day in advance, except for the Time Out Restaurant in Washburn and Bear Paw Café in Port Wing. Older adults are given the opportunity and encouraged to contribute what they can afford towards the cost of each meal. This allows us to serve more individuals in our communities.
