The Senior Meal Program provides a daily hot lunch and other activities. Lunches are fully balanced meals, including entrée, sides, dessert and beverage. Low-fat and chocolate milk and low-carb desserts are available. Volunteers help serve meals and also reach out to other older adults. Program staff provide information, outreach and referral information about other community services.
Meals are served Monday-Friday at 11:30 am; Doors open at 9:30 am; Call for reservations between 9:30 am - Noon; or register on-site one day in advance of attendance.
All participants must register (9:30am-11:15am) and receive a diners card. Once registered, participants may use their diners card to make a reservation at any Milwaukee County Senior Meal Dining Center. Reserve your meal at least one day in advance by phone or at the senior dining site before Noon.
A suggested contribution of $2.50 per meal helps the Senior Meal Program with the cost of the meal.
You can access menus by the month and locate meal sites at the Milwaukee County Department on Agings web site: www.county.milwaukee.gov/aging
- - - - - Lapham Park is a subsidized housing complex owned and operated by the Housing Authority of the City of Milwaukee (HACM). Through the creative use of public and private funds, the model of a Continuing Care Retirement Community was superimposed on this publicly-funded housing development to facilitate true "aging in place" for low-income seniors. The major partners in this venture include: HACM, the Milwaukee County Department on Aging, SET Ministry, Inc., Community Care Organization, St. Mary's Family Practice, and the Lapham Park Resident Organization.
