The Great Bend Senior Center is closed due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, with no congregate Friendship Meals being served or activities taking place. However, meals are still available, said center Director Brenda Lebbin.
The facility is providing carry-out and freezer meals Mondays through Fridays. They are available between 11-11:30 a.m.
“People just need to call in advance and let us know they are coming,” Lebbin said. “We will stand in the corridor and hand them the meal.”
The menus will be the same for both carry-out and freezer meals, she said. The offering will be the same as would have been provided for dine-in eating.
And, Lebbin said, the cost will be the same. For those under 60 years of age, the price is $5.75, and for those 60 and older, it is a suggested price of $3.50.
“We will keep doing this until we can reopen our dining room,” she said. On average, the center would serve between 60 and 90 dine-in customers daily.
In addition, the center’s public transportation is not running at this time and until further notice. “Sorry for the inconvenience. We hope this will not last long,” Lebbin said.
To place a meal order or for more information, call the center at 620-792-3906. It is located at 2005 Kansas Ave.
