GCCARD has recently started offering specialty lunches scheduled twice a month at our Senior Center. Each month we will have a special advertisement for the chosen days of the month. An RSVP date will also be noted. To join us, you just need to call the center by the RSVP date in question! Lunch cost is the same guidelines as for regular lunches stated above. Check for the star icon on the lunch calendar to pick out those days!

Also, you may have noticed an “HM” next to some of the lunches offered on the menu. On Tuesdays and Thursdays of each week (unless otherwise noted) there will be a Homemade “HM” meal offered at our center provided by GCCARD. Meals are still being offered five days a week. Join us!
