Meals Program

Do you or someone you may know need a hot lunch daily but do not have the means to get it?  We may be able to help.  Deer Park residents may qualify for a meal delivery service coordinated through our Maxwell Senior Center that will provide daily meals to homebound seniors.  If you are not homebound and would like to take part in the meals program visit us for congregate meals at the Community Center daily (Monday - Friday) at 11:30 am.

Please call by 11:30 a.m. the day before you want to join us for reservations. Lunch is available for a donation of $2 for Residents,  $5 mandatory fee for Non-Residents.

Home bound seniors may request an assessment for qualification for home-delivered meals. These meals are delivered Monday through Friday as well.
