Neighborly Care Network offers free meals to seniors

Times staff

There are 10 locations in Pinellas County that offer seniors hot, nutritious midday meals, as well as a place to socialize, make new friends, and enjoy a wide variety of planned activities. There are no charges for meals, however donations are appreciated.

Anyone 60 or older who lives in the county can participate but must first register 72 hours in advance with the Neighborly Care Network at (727) 573-9444. If needed, transportation is provided to the closest dining site at no charge.

The Neighborly Care Network, which started the first federally funded Meals on Wheels program, has been helping older people live independently in their own homes since 1966. If you'd like to volunteer or for more information, call (727) 573-9444 or visit
