Douglas County Senior Services providing low-cost lunches

Lawrence senior citizens can find a hearty meal around lunchtime at the Douglas County Senior Services building, 745 Vt.

The meal is served around noon Monday through Friday, and the center encourages seniors to pay $2.75, but “if you do not have $2.75, pay what you can,” said Senior Meals Manager Kim Wittman.

Seniors must be at least 60 and be able to verify their age.

Seniors also must call in a day before to ensure they receive a meal because Senior Meals prepares meals for only those who have a reservation.

“If you are homebound, we offer a delivery system for the same price,” Wittman said.

Homebound means a senior cannot drive and depends on somebody else for the majority of their day.

Wittman added that Senior Meals also provides a Grab & Go carryout system for those who are in a hurry.

“Just make sure you call in a day in advance no matter what meal service you want,” Wittman said.

Wittman can be reached at 842-0543.

One is compelled to wonder if the "Senior Center" is first snarfing up the day old bread that is donated to the Center......and if they're smart enuff to snarf up first the whole grain bread?

Lawrence Senior Center needs re-inventing. We're under heavy manners......

"Seniors must be at least 60 and be able to verify their age."

This is just an attempt from Mr. Kobach to prevent seniors from eating. Requiring old people to provide their birth certificate or drivers licenses is RACIST!!!

Besides those big name movie stars, I haven't yet met a sixty year old who looks like a twenty year old.

$ 2.75 is not low cost to me. I am 65 and on social security.
