Dining Sites offer food, friends, and fellowship

The Congregate/Senior Dining program typically provides hot, well-balanced meals at multiple locations. Participants enjoy good company and wholesome food as well as educational and entertaining activities.

  • Dining sites are located throughout Ingham, Eaton, and Clinton counties.
  • Well-balanced meals are prepared from fresh, nutritious ingredients.
  • Sites may offer occasional recreational programs (Cards, Bingo, etc.) and/or informational programs on subjects of interest to older adults.
  • Participants may wear a mask at the dining sites if they choose to do so.
  • Meals can be ordered for carry out at any location.
  • Adults who are age 60 and over are invited to attend. Spouses of those over 60 are welcome to join them regardless of age.
  • Individuals with a disability who reside in an apartment building hosting a dining site may also participate. Please call one day in advance to reserve a meal.
  • A donation is suggested for eligible persons. Persons not eligible may purchase a meal.
