How to Enroll

If you are 60 or older, you are eligible to enjoy a hot, delicious and nutritious meal at a community dining site.  The first time you come, you will be asked to fill out a registration form which is valid for the year.  You can come as often as you like. There is an opportunity at each site for you to make a voluntary contribution, but it’s not mandatory.

Call Frank Van Skiver at (518) 465-3322 to find out more about what programs are available or for our monthly meal options.

We ask that you make a reservation at least one full day before you plan on joining us for a meal, to ensure that enough food is ordered. Be sure to call the phone number next to the site you wish to visit no later than the time noted. You can drop in without a reservation, but we cannot guarantee that you will receive a meal.
