The suggested donation for daily meals is $5, and anyone who is 60 or older may participate. Reservations should be made the day before by calling David at the Senior Center (715-476-2113) or through the Aging Unit (1-800-950-8744).  A recent addition to the meals (at least for the winter months) is a daily soup as well as more fruits and vegetables.

The same meals are delivered to those who qualify but may not be able to get to the Senior Center. If you know of someone who may be interested in receiving home-delivered meals or might be interested in coming to the Center, please call David Walta as noted above.
