For years, the Neighborhood House's Community Cafe has been a highlight of Thursdays, as residents have been able to gather for a great meal and a little community conversation every other Thursday in the fall, winter and spring.


The Community Cafe  will be open on the first and third Thursday of each month, October 19th through April 18th.  Recognizing the fact that some will prefer the take away option, organizers are pleased to offer that option too!

This year the suggested donation is $10 per person, and seniors are invited to join “on the house.” Lunch is served from 11:30 to 1 p.m, or sooner, if all the food is gone!

There will be a limited number of vegetarian and gluten free meals available upon request.

The inaugural lunch is in memory of Les Foss, thanks to the support of an anonymous sponsor

This year, WDEA will be broadcasting from select lunches 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m
