The Fitchburg Senior Center serves around 10,000 meals a year to seniors in the community. These meals are not made at the Senior Center, but are catered by Consolidated Foods in Verona. The meals are packaged, delivered and served by volunteers at the Senior Center. Many seniors are unable to cook meals for themselves for one reason or another. The meals we deliver help our seniors stay in their own homes for as long as possible. ANYONE is welcome to eat at the senior center. People under the age of 60 are expected to pay the full price of the meal, however, those over the age of 60 can make a donation for the meals based on what they feel they can afford. Donations by participants are the main source of funding for this program.
We welcome you to join the "Buy a senior a Meal" campaign to raise funds for this vital program. For more information about how you can "buy a senior a meal" call 608.270.4290 and say "I Want to Buy a Senior A Meal!"
