Senior Lunch Programs
The Senior Lunch Program provides nutritious meals for *adults 60 or older. United Samaritans Foundation offers this program at 2 locations - In Turlock and in Hughson. Senior Lunch sites offer fresh made meals. The meals served provide at least one-third of the Dietary Reference Intake (DRI) for our older adult population.
COST: There is no fee for the meal however a suggested donation of $3.00 per meal is requested and a contribution of any amount helps fund more meals. No eligible participant will be denied a meal due to inability to contribute. Guests, or non-seniors, are welcome but must pay the full cost of the meal, currently $5.50.
