Senior Lunch Program

Everyone enjoys a hot, home-cooked meal now and then!

If you are 60+ years of age, join us Monday – Friday, 11:00am-12:30pm in the Virginia Christensen Multi-Use Facility (AKA The Old Gym) in Creede to see what culinary goodness Julie Meiser has cooked up!

The discounted lunch price for those who can pay is $3 and Ladies Aid pays for any others.

During COVID-19, all meals are delivered.

This is a year-round program and everyone is welcome.

The Hinsdale County office is starting a lunch delivery program for seniors in Lake City that will begin in January. Details to be determined.
