The LIAD Center’s offers a Lunch Program!

Exciting news! As of January 2020, the LIAD Center will provide full lunches to our day program participants. Thanks to our new lunch program, partially funded by Maspeth Federal Savings Bank, caregivers are relieved from preparing lunch meals for their loved one!

This critically needed program follows senior nutrition guidelines, and includes vegetables, protein and a carbohydrate. It also includes a cup of 1% milk to ensure our participants get their daily calcium. Lunches are provided completely free to our families Monday through Saturday. We are so appreciative of our donor's support, and especially Cinco de Mayo restaurant for their delicious menu.

"The lunch program is great! Not having to make a bagged lunch means one less thing for me to think about on days my husband attends the LIAD Center. I get a break and it makes me feel good to know that he is sharing a nutritious, delicious meal in a social atmosphere with friends. He always enjoys them!" - Maria, Caregiver
