What are Congregate (Group) Meals?

Food, friendship & fun. . . along with interesting presentations

Missoula Aging Services hosts two roaming congregate (group) meal events each month and you are invited! These meals are held across Missoula at various locations.

Reservations must be made for each event so we know how much food to prepare. Please call 728-7682 to make your reservation after the first of the month if you plan to attend.

We ask that all participants over age 60 make a voluntary contribution to attend. If you are under age 60, you may attend as a guest and are asked to pay $5 for the cost of the meal.

You will enjoy a variety of dishes at these congregate meals, plus a presentation on a topic of interest. Please join us for one of these fun and educational events.

What is the Rural Nutrition Program?

Congregate (group) meals are also offered to seniors age 60 and older in the communities of Seeley Lake, Condon/Swan Valley and Lolo.

To participate in a congregate (group) meal, seniors are asked to complete a short intake form at their first meal. Completing this form helps the rural site you choose to maintain funding as a congregate site. Your donations at a congregate meal help support this program as well. Please consider donating an appropriate amount based on your income.

Click here to download a form you may complete and take with you to your first congregate meal at any of the participating sites in Missoula County.
