The City of Lakewood partners with Volunteers of America (VOA) to offer hot, nutritious meals for people age 60 and older. Meals should be reserved in advance and are served in the dining room of the Clements Community Center, 1580 Yarrow St., Monday through Thursday and the first Friday of each month at noon.
View the September 2018 menu or the October 2018 menu.
For those age 60 and older, a $2.50 contribution is suggested; do not let that stop you from participating in the lunch program. You can reserve a lunch at no charge. The charge for those under age 60 is $8.50, which cannot be waived.
You will need to register as a participant in the program. Please call 303.987.4833 to obtain registration information and to reserve a meal. Reservations need to be given two business days in advance before 11 a.m. If you have missed the reservation deadline, please call 303.987.4833 on the day that you want to have lunch to see if there is room for that day.
If you are a Lakewood resident age 60 or older and are interested in Lakewood Rides door-through-door transportation, click here to learn more. Lakewood Rides provides trips for the Volunteers of America dining site with no fare charged. However, contributions are always welcome.
