Friendship Café Curbside Grab & Go Lunch
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 two locations within Schenectady County. The Glenville Senior Center 5 days a week, Monday through Friday, from 11:30am to 12:15pm and Our Lady of Fatima Church in Delanson 3 days a week, Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 11:45am to 12:30pm. Space is limited and reservations are required.
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.
The Grab & Go Lunch Program is available to Schenectady County residents 60 years and older and who are not currently receiving home delivered meals from the Meals on Wheels Program. The voluntary suggested contribution for each meal is $3.50.
Residents must register by calling the Catholic Charities Friendship Café at either the Glenville Senior Center at 518-393-1946 or Our Lady of Fatima Church at 518-275-7601 to reserve a meal. Reservations must be made a week in advance and participants MUST call by 12:00 noon the Friday before. Registration is required.
In some instances, a family member may pick up the meals; however, prior authorization from the Program is required.
