Lower Columbia Community Action Program (CAP) will offer lunch to any senior citizen starting March 3 from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Mondays and Tuesdays at the Grounds for Opportunity (GFO) Café, located next to the Kelso train station at 413 S. Pacific Ave.
“By offering this program at GFO, we hope to reach more seniors who can benefit from a hot, nutritious meal and who might also enjoy meeting friends for lunch, and making new friends,” Lisa Chavez, CAP’s nutrition coordinator, is quoted in a press release.
The purpose of CAP’s Senior Community Lunch Program is to provide nutrition and opportunities for seniors to socialize.
“As people grow older, maybe lose a spouse, they can become more at risk for not eating properly and becoming isolated,” said Chavez. “This program is designed to address both of those issues.”
