Monday through Friday it’s lunchtime at the Patagonia Senior Center. We serve take-out meals from 11:30 to 12:15. Dining inside is for vaccinated people only and is from 12:15 to 1:00 p.m. Senior Citizens of Patagonia (SCP) provides high quality and nutritious meals cooked on site by our chef and approved by a licensed nutritionist. Meals have choices to accommodate vegetarian, diabetic, gluten/grain-free and lactose intolerant diets and incorporate local, fresh-picked vegetables. Salads accompany each meal and typically have nine ingredients. Also served with each meal are 2% milk and a fruit.
No reservations are needed. We are now serving over 9,700 meals a year. Donation based, our lunch program relies on grants, in-kind, and individual contributions.
Who qualifies? If you are 60 years old, or the spouse of someone 60 or over, or a disabled individual of any age, you can register to participate in our lunch program. Guests are welcome and are asked to donate $5 per meal.
Our monthly menu is posted on this website, the Senior Center bulletin board and at the post office.
