Please tell our office if you know any Homebound seniors who need meals delivered.  We are reaching out to Lewiston, Douglas City, and other outlying areas.  If you are able to pick up/deliver to these areas let us know.  We need you!  Please contact the office or kitchen for more information.

Our full course meals are served at noon Monday through Thursday.  Homebound meals are delivered by our van driver or volunteers to folks who cannot come into the Center.
