Senior Dining Centers

More than just a meal!

People aged 60 or over can join us for a nutritious lunch at one of our Congregate Dining Centers located throughout Franklin, Madison, Marion, Champaign and Logan counties. We also provide Southeast and Central Asian cuisine, as well as Somali cuisine, at a variety of locations throughout Franklin County. Click on the above link for specific center location details. And for more information on the meals served at our congregate dining sites, please see our Monthly Menus.

Lunches are available to participants aged 60 and over for a $1.50 suggested contribution, and door-to-door transportation is available for a $1.25 suggested contribution to many of our centers. Although we receive funding from the United Way of Central Ohio and various other sources, your financial contribution is always welcome!

And we provide more than just a meal at our Congregate Dining Centers. Our sites offer you a location to visit with your neighbors and friends, as well as an opportunity to participate in a variety of activities:

  • Health screenings
  • Nutrition and health education
  • Social activities
  • Information and referral to community resources
Finally, at Carrie’s Cafe, each month we have a wide variety of activities that bring in hundreds of people each month. Come join us for the fun. Transportation is available.
Call LifeCare Alliance at 614.278.3153 by 3:00 p.m. to make your reservation.
