The Area Agency on Aging provides nutritious meals at six Neighborhood Centers. In addition, Neighborhood Centers offer a variety of services, activities, and educational programs for older individuals in the community.
Neighborhood Centers are open Monday-Friday 9:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. A meal is served daily at 11:30 a.m. Call the Neighborhood Center by 10:00 a.m. the day before to make a reservation.
A hot lunch is available for anyone age 60+ and their spouse Monday-Friday. Breakfast is also offered Tuesday-Thursday. The suggested donation is $3 per lunch and $2 per breakfast. No one is denied a meal if they are unable to donate. People under age 60 are also welcome to eat lunch, but must pay the full cost of the meal. Meals are funded in part through the Older Americans Act and the Kansas Department on Aging.
