The Council on Aging Senior Dining and Wellness program offers eligible adults the opportunity to enjoy daily nutritious, hot lunches from Moose Cafe along with weekly fresh local produce in a fun, safe and social setting at the Weaverville First Baptist Church, Senior Opportunity Center, Linwood Crump Shiloh Community Center, and the Lakeview Center for Active Aging. More than a meal, this program connects participants to health and wellness programming, opportunities for socialization, as well as community resources. Reservations after registration are required.

Update on Senior Dining Program

Due to COVID-19, dining sites are operating with a hybrid curbside/congregate option. Each site has their own COVID 19 protocols.

Lakeview Community Center, Weaverville First Baptist Church and  Senior Opportunity Center will open for congregate dining five days a week, Monday – Friday.  We will still offer curbside pickup of meals and limited delivery of meals.  The limited delivery of meals will only be for those people who are homebound and physically unable to use Mountain Mobility.  The Senior Dining Program is funded by the Home and Community Care Block Grant (HCCBG) to provide congregate nutrition as well as socialization. This hybrid model of congregate dining, curbside pick of meals, and delivery of meals will be evaluated on a month to month basis.

See below, or contact us, for more information.

Any dining site closures will be shared on WLOS in the morning, typically due to inclement weather and following the Buncombe County school’s closures.

There are four Senior Dining Sites throughout Buncombe County. Please see our locations and menus below.

These sites provide a friendly environment, where you can get a nutritious lunch, participate in exercises, play games, and meet friends, new and old!

In addition to Senior Dining & Wellness, COA offers additional food and nutrition services.

If you are interested in shelf-stable meals and are a homebound adult in Buncombe County, you may be interested in our homebound food delivery program. If you are interested in monthly food boxes, the Senior Food Program may be for you! For regular cost savings online and local markets, you may also be eligible for the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP).

In February, we served 2,056 meals!
