Senior Lunch Program 
The Senior Nutrition Program provides a nutritious lunch to adults 60 years of age or older. The program seeks to reduce the isolation of older adults by providing these meals in a social setting. We encourage all mobile, active, older adults to join us for the nutritious lunch. The meals are great, and the social environment is even better! 

Lunch is served daily from 11:30-1:00 at the Senior Center located at 560 Bell Street, East Palo Alto, CA 94303
