Friendship Café Curbside Grab & Go Lunch - Program Update

Catholic Charities Senior & Caregiver Support Services, in partnership with the Schenectady County Department of Senior & Long Term Care, is providing hot, nutritious boxed-lunch meals to adults 60 years and older through a Grab & Go Curbside Lunch.  This is an alternative to congregate dining so that we can ensure everyone’s safety. We are offering this service at the Glenville Senior Center 5 days a week, Monday through Friday, from 11:30am to 12:15pm.  This program was offered at Our Lady of Fatima Church in Delanson, yet in-person dining services will resume on Monday, April 19. Space is limited and reservations are required.  The Jewish Community Center in Niskayuna also offers in-person dining on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.

The Grab & Go Lunch allows for safe social distancing to protect against transmission of COVID-19, while continuing to provide healthy meals for Schenectady County’s older population.
