A nutritious noon meal is available to all seniors over the age of 60 and various sites within Dane County.

Meal Sites

Two of these sites fall under our program:

  • McFarland offers a meal site three days a week, Monday/Wednesday/Friday, served at 11:45 am at:
    McFarland Municipal Center
    5915 Milwaukee Street
    McFarland, WI 53558
  • We also offer a meal site in Cambridge two days a week on Tuesdays and Fridays served at noon at:
    Amundson Center
    200 Spring Street
    Cambridge, WI 53523


The menu offers a meatless option daily and a salad as a main meal on Fridays as a choice. Certain special diets can be accommodated with a prescription by your physician. However, our caterer cannot guarantee their preparation area be free of nuts or other allergens and currently cannot offer Gluten free. Please inquire if you have questions. There may be alternatives available on a private pay basis.

Reservations are required and transportation is available by request. Monthly menus are posted at:

Home Delivery

Home-delivered meals are available to qualified seniors five days a week in the area of McFarland, Town of Dunn, and Town of Pleasant Springs. A home assessment to determine qualifications is required within 30 days of beginning meals. Guidelines and expectations of the recipients are also explained.

Emergency Contact

An emergency contact is necessary upon signup in case we are unable to reach the recipient when delivering the meal. Part of the service is a check-in program. If a recipient is not available, the emergency contact is contacted. If it is observed to be a medical crisis, we will respond with emergency services. Meals are not available on certain holidays and will be cancelled with severe weather.

Suggested Donation

A monthly letter is sent to participants or their contacts with suggested donations based on meals provided. Currently the contribution requested for the meal site and home delivered meals is $4 meal. A person will not be denied by their inability to pay that cost.
