Community Dining is comprised of 19 dining sites that pre-pandemic, were congregate meals sites to increase socialization and peer connections. Most of them now function as congregate AND delivery or to-go meal service sites. What makes this program so unique is that each site’s meals cater to the cultural or ethnic group represented by the individuals that frequent the site.
That said, we have seen a huge increase in marginalized and underserved populations of older adults accessing the meals while showing and needing more than just a meal. Currently, there are no senior centers that make assisting East African Seniors a priority. We see a need to expand our robust senior programming for those who present seen and unseen needs beyond a meal in this community. With your support we hope to raise over the $225,000 needed in seed money to launch phase one of programming. Support us today at https://app.mobilecause.com/f/1o3y/n?vid=s4a2c
