Lunch Program

attention-303861_1280Lunch Program CHANGES: Dine-in lunches temporarily suspended effective Monday, March 16, 2020 due to the Coronavirus.

Effective Monday, March 30, we will begin distributing meals 3-times a week to reduce the number of times lunch participants come out into the community. A hot meal plus a boxed lunch will be distributed on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, ensuring that our lunch participants receive 6 meals weekly.

At this time we are only accepting new applications for those county residents age 60 and over and who can pick up a meal at either the Seymour Center or Passmore Center. 

Those in group quarters will only be considered if they can identify someone to come and pickup their meal. 

For questions, please contact the Aging Helpline at 919-968-2070.
