Most community meal sites in Fresno also act as senior centers. Fresno senior centers are usually open half a day and have activities, exercises, and provide an opportunity to meet with friends. The activities, hours, fees, age at which a person is a ‘senior,’ and suggested lunch donation differ at the various community centers. Information for this list was obtained by calling the community centers. Many of these centers require filling out an application for lunch. Calling to confirm times and reserve lunch is a requirement for most before attending.
