 THE LUNCH BUNCH: SENIOR MEALS
Lunch Bunch - Sonja Serving

Monday-Friday   |   11:45 am   |   Reservations should be made 24 hours in advance by calling the Food Site Manager at 218.299.5519 between the hours of 10 am-12:30 pm.  

 A hot, nutritious, noontime meal will be provided at the Hjemkomst Center.   Residents age 60 and older and their spouse (even if under the age of 60) are   eligible to enjoy this meal. A suggested donation of $4 is kindly requested.   Persons under the age of 60 are required to pay $8.

NSI provides this service in part, under the Federal Older Americans Act through a contract with the NWRDC under an area plan approved by the Minnesota Board on Aging. 

CALL TO ACTION: Meals for older adults are seriously underfunded in Minnesota and, as a result, the health of older Minnesotans is at risk. We need your help to add $10 million to the Senior Nutrition Program under Minnesota Statutes, section 256.9752. Click here to learn more.
