The Senior Dining and Wellness program offers eligible adults the opportunity to enjoy free hot meals from Moose Cafe throughout the week, opportunities to connect with others, and includes educational and fitness programming geared toward health and wellness. Council on Aging works with partnered meal sites at the Weaverville First Baptist Church, Senior Opportunity Center, Shiloh Community Center, and the Lakeview Center for Active Aging to meet nutritional and social needs of our community with food, fun and friendship. Staff and volunteers serve meals, engage and build relationships, and can help participants schedule transportation, connect with resources, and more! Due to COVID-19, there may be other options for receiving lunches outside of gathering together, such as curbside pick-up for those who can drive to the site and approved delivery to temporarily homebound participants.  

Due to COVID-19 all dining sites are closed for dine-in and socialization until further notice.

Curbside pickup of hot meals, shelf -stable groceries five days a week at the Senior Opportunity Center, Weaverville First Baptist Church, and The Lakeview Center for Active Aging; and Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays at Shiloh.

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 have new food needs due to COVID-19, Contact Jennie Pressley.

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!
