Rename our Congregate Meal Program

After the interruption of the pandemic we’re excited to re-open our congregate meals, in partnership with Horizons. We’d love to have your help in renaming the program. Names could highlight the history of the program, previous participants, or a local landmark or story. Suggestions will be accepted through June 3, with a selection made prior to the grand re-opening on Friday, June 17th. Submit your idea here. Learn more about congregate meals here
