The Mountainland Association of Governments is providing meals for seniors in need.
The meals are being distributed through senior centers and are available for seniors ages 60 and older.
You do not have to go in or get out of your car because the meals are distributed via curbside pick-up. You pull up and someone will hand you a bag with your meal.
Meals are pre-packaged and include hot items like spaghetti, Malibu chicken, meatloaf, and Swedish meatballs. All meals come with a vegetable and milk. You can pick up a menu at your senior center.
The distribution of the meals depends on the location where you are picking up from. You will be required to call the day before to reserve a meal.
When you call, they will ask you questions to ensure that you qualify. If you are not in the Mountainland Congregate Meal system, you may need to fill out a form. Meals are available Monday through Friday.
For Spanish Fork Senior Center, you need to call the day before between 9 a.m. and noon to make your reservation. Meals are available to residents between 11:30 and 12:30. You will enter on the west side of the parking lot and follow the cones to the southwest corner of the building where you will be handed your lunch. Call (801) 798-5015 for more information.
For Springville Senior Center, you need to call before 1 p.m. on the day prior to reserve your meal. Then you can come pick up between 11:30 and 12:30 Monday through Friday. In order to pick up, you can drive on the sidewalk in front of the senior center.
