What is Senior Dining?

Once known as the Elderly Nutrition Program or the Senior Meal Program, Senior Dining has been a part of the fiber in Milwaukee County for more than 40 plus years.  Since 1973, this program has been serving meals to adults 60+ years old in various community settings.  The program receives funding from the State of Wisconsin's Bureau on Aging, Title 111-C of the Federal Older Americans Act, and contributions from seniors in our community.

What is the Cost?

Each senior is asked to contribute $3 per meal.  If this contribution amount is a hardship for you, please give whatever you can. 

What is on the Menu?       

The menus must meet Federal guidelines for nutritional and calorie content.  A wide variety of foods that equal 1/3 of the recommended daily allowance of Vitamins A & C and Calcium are offered.  Menus are posted at the meal sites and take home copies are available.  (April 2020 Menu (if applicable due to COVID-19))

How do I Sign Up? 

Each diner must sign up by completing a Registration Card, which requires a Driver's License or a Senior Citizen ID card.  You will then receive a Diner's Card with a Diner Number that you may use to dine at any of the Milwaukee County Senior Dining Meal locations.  All diners must place a reservation at least 1 day in advance for the date they wish to dine.  Reservations may be placed in person or by phone (414-427-7696) from 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. weekdays.  All meals ordered for the following day are based on the number of meals recorded on the reservation list.  If you have not placed a reservation, you may not be able to dine.
