Lunch Program

Lunch goers talk during a VOA lunch.

Lunch is temporarily closed for 6 weeks due to the Volunteers of America not serving hot meals for 6 weeks.  They are moving to a new facility and kitchen so there is currently no menu. They hope to be back up and running by mid April.

The City of Lakewood partners with Volunteers of America (VOA) to offer hot, nutritious meals for ages 60 and older. Meals are dine-in or grab-and-go and served in the dining room of the Clements Community Center, located at 1580 Yarrow St.


Open Mondays-Thursdays. Lunch is served at 11:45 a.m. by reservation. View the calendar

Reserve your meal

Reservations are required and should be made three business days in advance. Call 303-987-4833 to reserve.

Join us for a Lunch and Learn to have a deeper discussion on the consequences of untreated loss and the benefits that treating hearing loss can have on our overall health and wellbeing.
