Congregate Meals Program

Serving 60 years of age and older, this program is funded by the Area Office On Aging. Kosher, balanced meals are served five times a week at the Center. Meals are prepared by Kingston Kosher, necessitating reservations being made several days in advance. There is no charge; however, donations of $2.00 per meal are accepted. Participants are encouraged to stay for cards or board games following the meal. Once we reopen call the front desk at 570-824-4646 for reservations.
