GRANGEVILLE Are you looking for a reasonably-priced homemade, nutritious meal? Why not try the Grangeville Senior Citizens Meal Site?
“It’s not just for seniors, it’s for anyone and everyone,” said Dollar-A-Month Club board member and volunteer Barbara Henderson.
Henderson said home-cooked meals are served Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at noon at the center, 108 Grangeville Truck Route.
“Donations are accepted to not only help offset meal costs, but also to help with the bills associated with the facility, such as lights and heating and air conditioning,” Henderson explained. “I usually donate $5 for a meal and that’s a bargain for a main course, vegetable, dessert and drink.” Homemade bread and rolls are also served often.
GRANGEVILLE — The Grangeville Senior Citizens Center rents its 50-by-50-foot space, holding a maximum of 350 people, for $50 an hour ($50 extra to use the kitchen).
The center is currently replacing chairs at a cost of $80 apiece. Donors can purchase a chair and have a plaque placed on it in memory of a friend or family member.
Call the center at 208-983-2033 or stop by 108 Grangeville Truck Route.
Henderson stated that not only is the food good, but also the friends and activities are fun.
Bingo and pinochle are often played, and music by The Old Time Fiddlers and others is also part of many meal days.
“The coffee is always on and there are friendly faces,” Henderson said. “We welcome business people, families, everyone.”
Henderson advises people arrive at about 11:45 a.m.to get seated for lunch. Lately, pinochle starts following lunch at 1:15 p.m. and runs through to 4:15 p.m.
