The lunch program at this Loaves and Fishes meal center serves hundreds of elders in the community each week. With their garden, staff is able to produce food to use in the kitchen, as well as provide a connecting experience for their clients. Immigrant and Refugee Community Organization (IRCO) programs onsite have included “senior-to-senior” mentoring programs, partnering seniors in high school with senior citizens.
