Lunch at The Centers
The COA is now serving lunch at the centers. We are also providing takeout lunches. If you would like to order a lunch “To Go” you must call the COA or sign up online 24 hours in advance. We also have kiosks at both our centers where you can make lunch reservations.
The Restaurant Program is an extension of our congregate meal site. It allows our COA members to get vouchers or tickets for participating restaurants. This allows our seniors a choice of where they eat, what they eat and when they eat, but more importantly, it gives them the opportunity to eat out – to not eat at home alone. COA members can pick up the tickets or vouchers at our Sturgis Enrichment Center or our Rivers Enrichment Center. Tickets can be obtained for a suggested donation of $4.00 per ticket. This program is not only beneficial to our seniors by giving them the opportunity to eat at a restaurant of their choice, but the restaurants also benefit from getting more customers into their establishments. Each year, more than $250,000 is re-invested back into our community through our local restaurant owners.
A complete list of the Restaurant Program guidelines and participating restaurants can be found below. Because restaurants occasionally change their hours of operation, if you are not sure if the restaurant you want to eat is open, please call ahead.
