Seniors often lose touch with friends and companions as they grow older and become more isolated. The Senior Lunch program of Senior Services provides a warm, friendly atmosphere and a hearty lunch for seniors three days a week at four sites throughout Forsyth County. The meals, health screenings and health information provide nourishment for the body, but the socialization, arts and crafts, music and fun provide nourishment for the spirit.
Who is eligible and where are the Senior Lunch sites?
Forsyth County residents over the age of 60 are eligible as space becomes available.
There are four sites around the county that operate Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays: Sprague Street Community Center (W-S), Brown and Douglas Recreation Center (W-S), Koerner Place Apartments (Kernersville) and Sunrise Towers (W-S).
Here’s what Senior Lunch participants say about the program:
“I enjoy meeting people and getting a hot meal.”
“I like the fellowship, crafts, jewelry making, singers that come to the site,
and the exercise!”
“It gives me a place to go and something to do!”
“I think it is the best thing that could happen to help us get out of the house.”
