The Central Crossing Senior Center may be closed for day-to-day lunches and activities due to the COVID-19 crisis, but staff are still working to help their senior friends.

The Center’s lunch-to-go program has volunteers who want to make these stressful times as much fun as possible. 

Residents can experience the fun themselves Monday through Friday from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., when they come to the Center at 20801 YY-15, Shell Knob. “Our zany friends await you under the portico,” a press release said. “They will take your order for the number of meals (up to 7 per week per person over the age of 60) and then bring them out to your car.

“The entree also comes with bread, milk and dessert if you so choose. All meals are frozen ready for you to microwave at home. We are unable to provide you with a choice of meals but all are delicious and nutritious. If you would like to make a donation for the meals, thank you, but not required. Come to the center soon.”
