Congregate Meals

Join a social lunch

Social lunch sites are smaller local locations for older adults who want to get together and share a meal with new people. Meals are for those 60 and older residing in Licking County with a suggested donation of $3. Meal reservations or cancellations must be made by 3:00 PM the business day prior. If you need to make a reservation, or cancel a meal at a site, please contact with Jess Mitchell at (740) 345-0821 ext. 216.
