Through a partnership with La Comida who serves a professionally planned and prepared menu that changes daily. Each 3-course meal supports the nutritional needs of older adults. All food is prepared by our staff in our fully equipped kitchen. The diversity of diners and cuisines adds interest and pleasure to your dining experience. Some special dietary needs can be accommodated. A $3.00 contribution is asked from each person to help offset the cost of the meal.
