Seniors will soon be able to participate in congregate dining at Washington Park Community Center, 3617 Delaware Ave., Rockford. The anticipated opening for the dining site is on or about Oct. 15.
People 60 years of age and older, their spouses and other qualified disabled people can receive a hot, nutritious noon meal Monday through Friday. The meals are provided for a suggested donation, based upon income, and no qualified individual will be denied service based on their level of donation or inability to pay. Meals are provided under funds from the Older Americans Act. Reservations are required by 10 a.m. the day before.
A grand opening will be announced at a later time. Visit Lifescapes Web site at lifescapeservices.org. For more information, or to make meal reservations, call Susan Smith at Lifescape, (815) 490-1106.
