Senior Dining

Good nutrition is an important part of healthy aging. Senior dining sites serve delicious, nutritious and balanced hot lunches at convenient locations throughout Milwaukee County.

Anyone 60 and over can join us for lunch. There is a suggested contribution of $3 for diners 60 and over and a cost of $8 for their guests under 60.

You will need to first register for a diner card and then make reservations at least 24 hours in advance. Download the registration form.  Call (414) 289-6995 for more information or take a look at our Dining FAQ's.
