Senior community lunches to resume starting tomorrow

Posted May 10, 2022 at 7:27 pm by

Although COVID cas­es are once again on the rise, senior com­mu­ni­ty lunch­es are set to return to the Mullis Cen­ter start­ing tomor­row after a two-year hiatus.

Orga­nized by Meals on Wheels and More, along with San Juan Coun­ty Health and Com­mu­ni­ty Ser­vices, the lunch pro­gram is sched­uled to take place on Wednes­days from noon to 1 p.m. through the month of May. Start­ing in June the orga­ni­za­tions hope to expand lunch to ser­vice to Mon­days, Wednes­days, and Fridays.

The meals are avail­able on a dona­tion-only basis to peo­ple age 60 and old­er. Oth­ers eli­gi­ble for a dona­tion-based meal include the spouse/domestic part­ner of an eli­gi­ble senior, the unpaid care­giv­er of an eli­gi­ble senior, the dis­abled depen­dent of an eli­gi­ble senior, and vol­un­teers of any age who sup­port the meal pro­gram. The sug­gest­ed dona­tion is $5 per meal, or what­ev­er is afford­able. No eli­gi­ble per­son will be turned away due to the inabil­i­ty to donate, accord­ing to the orga­niz­ers. Any­one under age 60 who wants to take part in the meal pro­gram will be charged $8.50.

Senior cen­ter mem­ber­ship is not required to par­tic­i­pate in the com­mu­ni­ty meals. Masks are not required inside the senior cen­ters, except when eat­ing, but they are encouraged.
