Community Dining is a network of sites throughout King County where those aged 60 and up can enjoy an affordable, nutritious meal with other older adults.

It’s a great way to stay engaged with a local community, as many locations are connected to senior centers and other civic or cultural organizations. Guests can make friends, enjoy a hot meal and learn about other fun events and activities.

How it works:

  • Find a location near you.
  • Many sites offer lunch five days a week, and have schedules and menus available on their websites. Visit our menu page to learn more about your local site.
  • You do not need to make a reservation and there is no membership fee or commitment required—simply drop by at any of the scheduled times.
  • At all locations, lunch is free with a suggested donation of $4 for those aged 60 and up. Everyone is welcome and there are no income-based eligibility requirements.
  • For those under the age of 60, there is a nominal fee of $10.
  • Have a birthday coming up? Ask site coordinators about Monthly Birthday Lunches and other special events! (Contact info on individual site pages).
  • Sound Generations partners with a variety of organizations to host Community Dining, some of which specialize in particular cuisines such as Japanese, Latino, East Indian, Kosher and Soul Food. See our full list of locations to decide which is best for you.
  • Food stamp allotments can be used to have lunch at our programs. Call for more information: (206) 727-6253.
  • If you need help getting to a Community Dining site, our Transportation Assistance programs may be able to help.
