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.
