Senior Dining Sites


Healthy Eating


Senior Dining Sites provide nutritious meals to adults age 60 and over in a friendly social setting. Those accompanying an older adult(s) are also welcome to dine as a guest. These nutrition gatherings are set as communal dining to build community through socialization while enjoying a low-cost, healthy senior meal. Each Senior Dining Site menu meets 1/3 of the Recommended Dietary Allowance (RDA) to ensure all meals are nutrient-rich for seniors.

Our mealtime gatherings for older adults are wellness-focused senior gatherings that may also provide informational educational programs, counseling, health screening, wellness, and exercise programs.

Senior Dining is sponsored by the Onondaga County Department of Adult & Long Term Care Services, the New York State Office for the Aging, and the US Administration on Aging. Non-profit subcontractors provide lunch at our dining sites throughout the week and some breakfast and evening meals.

Three local agencies prepare nutritious meals for Onondaga County residents age 60 and older: PEACE Inc., Salvation Army, and the Jewish Community Center, which provides kosher meals. Reservations are necessary to ensure an adequate number of meals are on hand; PEACE and the Jewish Community Center require registration; please call to register:
