Loaves & Fishes operates more than 36 meal sites throughout Multnomah, Washington and Clark counties. In addition to hot, nutritious lunches served Monday through Friday, many of our centers offer a wide variety of programs, from exercise to art classes to field trips and outings. Anyone over the age of 60, regardless of income, is invited to dine.
The noon meal supplies one-third to one-half of an older adult’s daily nutrition requirements. Each menu includes salad, entree, starch, vegetable, bread, dessert, and beverage. The DASH Diet is also available for those who need diabetic, low sodium or low cholesterol meals.
Meals are provided on a donation basis to those age 60 and older. Recipients are encouraged to donate toward the cost of their meals as they are able.
