Building community, one meal at a time.
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.
***NOTICE: Due to COVID-19, the Community Dining Senior Center sites are closed to congregate dining. Contact your local Community Dining location to find out about having a meal delivered.
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 Community Dining site.
- At all locations, a suggested donation of $3 to $5 is encouraged for those 60 and older. A $10 contribution is asked for those under 60.
- SNAP/EBT allotments can be used to have lunch at our programs. Call (206) 727-6253 for more information.
- Have a birthday coming up? Ask site coordinators about Monthly Birthday Lunches and other special events! See contact info on individual site pages.
- If you need help getting to a Community Dining site, our Transportation programs may be able to help.
