Nutrition Program

The Monson Council on Aging operates its own kitchen where meals are prepared each weekday. Homemade desserts and breads are often included in our lunch program.
Lunch is available every Monday through Friday at noontime in our lovely dining room at the Center for any senior over 60 and guest. Suggested donation $2.50 for participants 60 and over. Guests under 60 must pay $3.50. Reservations may be made by calling the Center at 267-4121 by 2:30 pm the day before attending lunch. Federal Guidelines specify that food should not be taken from the lunch site. The only exceptions are bread, fruit, milk or non-perishable items. The menu for each day is published in A Senior Moment, our monthly newsletter.
Home Delivered Meals are delivered Monday through Friday to Monson seniors who are just home from the hospital or homebound. Suggested donation is $2.50  Meals may be requested by calling the Center at 267-4121. The menu for Home Delivered Meals is the same as that of meals served at the Center.
Weekend Home Delivered Meals are frozen meals that are delivered on Wednesdays for Saturdays and on Thursdays for Sundays. Please sign up on or before Tuesday if you would like weekend meals.
Special Dinners and Entertainment are held to commemorate holidays and special events. Reservations are required. Suggested Donation: $5.00
Birthday Lunches are held the second Tuesday of each month. Each month anyone celebrating a Birthday is invited to the Center to celebrate with your friends. Each birthday celebrant will receive a complimentary gift. Just call the Center by 2:30 pm the day before the party. Be sure to let us know it's your birthday so we can plan appropriately! Of course there will be cake.
