Senior Meals Program Reopening Florence Café 60 Location for Dine-in Meals

Florence, Ore. — The Senior Meals Program is excited to announce the reopening of its Café 60 location in Florence, Oregon. The dine-in program, part of Lane Council of Governments (LCOG)’s Senior & Disability Services division, was on hiatus for the past three years but offered grab-and-go meals during that time. Café 60s provide a dine-in experience to Lane County seniors who might otherwise go hungry.

The Florence location will reopen on Monday, December 4. It will operate on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday at 11:15 a.m. at the Florence Senior Center at 1570 Kingwood Street, Florence, OR 97439.

All participants have a choice between two main dishes each day. And fun fact, each meal provides at least one third of your daily nutritional requirements!

Menu for December 4:

Entrée Options: Western Beef Steak with Gravy or Mexican Pasta Bake
Sides: Chuckwagon Corn, Spinach & Romaine Salad, Seven Grain Roll
Dessert: Lemon Pudding

We request our participants make reservations at least one week in advance by calling (541) 997-5673 or stopping by the Café 60 location and filling out a reservation menu, to ensure we order enough food from our caterer (plus this ensures you get what you want to eat).

Anyone who is 60 years of age or over, and their spouse of any age, are eligible to dine with us at no cost. For people who are not yet 60 are always welcome to join us at the cost of the meal, which is $8.00. Voluntary donations are welcome, but not required. Contributions directly impact our ability to provide nutritious meals, friendly visits, and regular wellness checks to seniors in our community.

We are eager to welcome new volunteers to serve our local seniors. If you would like to be part of this wonderful program, please call 541-682-1366.
