On March 11, 2020, Governor Newsom made an announcement, joining state health officials, in recommending the cancellation of gatherings of 250 or more people across the state in an effort to slow the spread of the Novel Coronavirus or COVID-19 Virus. This recommendation is in effect at least through the end of March.
With these recent developments and following the Mass Gatherings Guidance on COVID-19 provided by the California Department of Public Health (CDPH), it is recommended that the San Dimas Parks and Recreation Department modify the Senior Lunch Services Program starting the week of March 16.
Lunch Service will be served as usual on Monday, March 16 from 10 am – 12:30 pm at the Senior Center/Community Center (201 E. Bonita Ave.). Starting Wednesday, March 18, the YWCA will be providing a five-day supply of boxed lunches and frozen meals to Senior Lunch Participants.
Participants will be able to pick up their lunch curbside between 11:30 am – 1 pm outside of the entry doors of the Multi-purpose lunch room. Participants are encouraged to bring a tote bag to transport the boxed lunches and frozen meals provided.
Boxed lunches and frozen meals will only be provided on Wednesdays moving forward while the City is employing an abundance of caution in an effort to slow the spread of the COVID-19 virus. At this time, there is no scheduled lunch service planned for Tuesday, March 17; Thursday, March 19; or Friday, March 20. This page will be updated if there are any changes that may affect the Senior Lunch Service program in the future.
UPDATE: The City of San Dimas would like to extend its sincere gratitude to Chick-Fil-A (Glendora) for agreeing to supply 60 chicken sandwiches for the Senior Lunch Services Program on Tuesday, March 17. The Parks and Recreation Department will be able to provide sack lunch options for residents 55 + on a first-come, first-serve basis. To make a reservation to participate in the lunch program for Tuesday, March 17, 2020, please contact the Senior Center/Community Center at (909) 394-6290.
