Meal Donations

Make a Donation: The suggested donation for a person age 60 or older and their spouse is $4 per lunch and $3 per breakfast. No one is denied a meal if they are unable to donate. Meals are funded in part through the Older Americans Act and the Kansas Department for Aging and Disability Services.
