Weekly Lunch Program
JOIN US FOR LUNCH!
Senior Services will offer a warm and friendly atmosphere for seniors to enjoy lunch each Wednesday at the Estes Valley Community Center. The meals provide nourishment for the body and the socialization provides nourishment for the soul. The fresh and healthy lunches are catered by Jubilations Catering and includes a beverage, hot main dish, salad and dessert.
On Thursday, March 8, EVRPD launched the pilot of its Senior Lunch Program. To date, 708 seniors have been served with an average of 65 seniors attending each lunch. Meals are catered by Jubilations Catering and include a salad, hot main dish, and dessert. Thanks to a generous grant from SupplyWorks, patrons have been paying only $5 per lunch (the actual cost of the meal is $15). Due to the overwhelmingly positive response, EVRPD will extend the pilot program through June with a few modifications. The extension will allow EVRPD and its Senior Advisory Committee additional time to identify ways to make the lunch financially sustainable. The current lunch model requires a weekly subsidy of approximately $700. The planned modifications will reduce the subsidy to $400 per week.
Beginning on June 6, the following changes to the program will take place:
• Lunches will be moved to Wednesdays at 12:00 noon.
• The fee will increase to $7 per person. ($15 for persons under 55)
• Pre-payment is required at the time of sign up.
• There will be a 50-person limit for each lunch.
• Lunch reservations will open the Friday prior to each Wednesday lunch.
The subsidy for June has been funded by an anonymous donor. If you are interested in contributing to the Senior Lunch Program, EVRPD has launched the Estes Valley Recreation and Park Foundation, a 501c3 entity that can receive donations in any amount.
