Seniors in Evanston will now have more lunch options in programs at the Levy Senior Center and the Fleetwood-Jourdain Community Center.
The Levy Center’s Garden Café, located at 300 Dodge Ave., now offers a deli bar with soup and a selection of salad or a sandwich on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Hot meals will continue to be served on all weekdays.
At the Fleetwood-Jourdain Community Center’s Wisdom Café, located at 1655 Foster St., hot meals will be served every Wednesday, with the new deli bar option available the last Wednesday of each month.
Lunches are offered at both locations from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.
For the fifth consecutive year, the Levy Senior Center and Fleetwood-Jourdain Community Center are able to host the senior meal program thanks to a $40,000 grant from AgeOptions, an agency in Cook County that connects older adults with various resources and service options.
The senior meal program allows local residents over the age of 60 to stop by one of the community centers to enjoy lunch for a suggested donation of $4.50, although no eligible seniors are turned away if they are unable to contribute. Residents under 60 may also purchase lunch at the Levy Center or Fleetwood-Jourdain Community Center for $6.50.
