Most Council On Aging Senior Dining Sites Return To In-Person Meals

October 25, 2021

Many of the Council on Aging of West Florida’s senior dining sites have returned to in-person service, which provides those 60 and over the opportunity for daily exercise, socialization, crafting and a free lunch.

For those who can and enjoy getting out for lunch, the Senior Dining Program is a neighborhood-based program which offers older citizens the opportunity to share their lunch with others their age. Hot nutritious balanced meals are served to active senior adults at several locations throughout Escambia and Santa Rosa counties. Meals are prepared fresh daily and contain one-third of the required daily allowance (RDA) for adults and comply with the Florida Department of Elder Affairs Guidelines. In addition, participants have an opportunity to join in arts and crafts projects, play games and socialize.

In Escambia County, the Cantonment, Century and Cobb locations are open for sit-down lunches Monday-Friday. Fricker has sit-down lunches only on Monday, Thursdays and Fridays. Grab & Go lunches are available at the
Gull Point, Wedgewood, Westminster 1 & 5, Beulah, Westwood Homes and Bayview sites.

In Santa Rosa County, sit-down meals are available at the Chumuckla, Milton and Bagdad locations Monday-Friday. The Navarre site also has site-down lunches, but only Monday-Thursday.

Meals must be ordered before noon one day in advance by calling (850) 432-1475. Meals site locations and details are as follows:
