Congregate meal sites are places like senior centers where lunch is served on weekdays to individuals age 60 or older. At Senior Centers people come together to enjoy a meal, meet and talk with friends, participate in health programs, and find out about services. Some Senior Centers have transportation available from your home to the center.
