Senior community lunches to resume starting tomorrow
Posted May 10, 2022 at 7:27 pm by Jeff Arnim
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.
