55+ Dinner Update as of July 2020:

Happily, during our closure for Covid in the Spring we were able to reopen for once a week Take Out Dinners by Reservation.

This proved to be VERY successful and we are hopeful that we can return to something similar in the Fall.

The health and safety of our Diners, Volunteers and Staff is of utmost importance to us and as such, we are being very diligent in working out how to keep our dinners happening while following the protocols and safety measures set out by Dr. Bonnie Henry and Health Minister Adrian Dix.

As you know our café area is very small, and covid restrictions limit us, not only with the floor space giving us much lower capacity but also with how people who are not sharing a “bubble” will be unable to share a table.

If you would like to be added to our Senior’s Dinner Contact List, please email Susan at centredesk@jamesbaycentre.ca or call us @ 250.389.1470 and leave your name, phone #, and email address.

(For anyone who participated in the take our dinners in the spring, you are already on the list.)
Susan will be in contact and keep everyone up to date once we have a better idea of how things will look.

The object of the program is to provide nutritious meals to seniors in a friendly and caring environment and provide a place to encourage social interaction between all members of the community. The 55+ dinner program operates with a large volunteer component and a roster of mostly senior volunteers. Dinners are usually served every Tuesday and Thursday evening at 5pm from mid-September to the end of June. Some special dinners require the advance purchase of a ticket. Pay as you go or purchase a punch card, meals are provided at a low cost due to a subsidy provided by the Vancouver Island Health Authority. Make friends or bring along your own for a three course meal.
