Welcome to our Lunch & Learn Program

Our Lunch & Learn Program offers a delicious meal in a social setting, along with engaging and interactive learning opportunities for West Parry Sound District seniors, their families and their friends.

Why Join This Program?

Food brings us together to learn from each other. One of the primary pleasures of food is social; for many that means conversation, stories and laughter while eating with family and friends and with Lunch and Learn you also have the opportunity to learn.

Lunch & Learn is available to West Parry Sound District residents interested in enjoying a meal out with other people as well as anyone who wants to learn about topics that are relevant to the aging population.

Who can attend?

CSS endeavors to ensure that frail elderly and/or those who are socially isolated attend. However, we believe in inclusive intergenerational community activities which promotes diversity and healthy aging communities. As a result the Lunch & Learn becomes a united group of people who watch out for each other.

All Lunch & Learns are open to seniors and those that support seniors in some way or another.

This includes Personal Support Workers, care givers, medical care providers, pharmacy, banking, grocery/store cashiers, police officers; anyone who comes in contact with and want to learn about topics that are relevant to our aging community.

To register, please contact us today!

What about the food?

CSS partners with local organizations and restaurants who then prepare nutritious meals at a reasonable cost.
