Meals & Nutrition

Congregate Meals

In addition to a hot meal five days a week, this program gives people age 60 and older an opportunity to socialize and enjoy the company of old and new friends alike.  You can maintain your health and independence surrounded by people who care. Meals are provided at all Cumberland County Senior Centers at no cost (donations accepted)
