Helping our seniors by providing
free/discounted Breakfast & Lunch

Since opening the kitchens at the Shawnee Senior Center, we’ve had a lot of success and impacted the lives of seniors for the better. Many people assume that seniors are in a group of financially sound individuals. But the truth is SSI sometimes runs out and retirement can be lackluster making it difficult for seniors to eat well-balanced meals their body needs. We also see many widowed seniors who a lot of times, the spouse that passed was the cook. These seniors rely on this program to get them eating consistent nutritious meals in a friendly, welcoming, and social environment.
