Not just for seniors, meals are served at noon at three senior center locations in Grant County.
Each meal is served by volunteers, with entrées sponsored by local individuals, businesses and organizations. Drawings are also held for prizes, such as free meals or gift certificates from area businesses. Birthdays are recognized monthly with a cake sponsored by local businesses.
Fresh or frozen meals can be delivered to the homebound. Call the day before or by 10 a.m. the day of the meal.
Meals are not served on major holidays.
