New senior lunch program
By Betty DeForest
-- Beginning on August 20, 2012, South Hayward Parish, in conjunction with the New Bridges Presbyterian Outreach Center, will host a Senior Luncheon every Monday starting at noon. Along with being served nutritious meals that meet the requirements of a senior adultís diet (low in both sodium and sugar), seniors will also enjoy a chance to socialize with fellow residents of the local Hayward community. This program is open to all seniors, 60 years of age or older with a suggested donation of $3.25. The program is designed to engage seniors, especially those in need of companionship, in meeting their fellow Hayward residents to mingle over a delicious meal. This luncheon will take place at the Outreach Center, 27287 Patrick Avenue, Hayward. Those interested are encouraged to sign up at the Family Resource Collective at the same location.
As a community made up of seven congregations of a variety of different faiths, South Hayward Parish strives to engage people in interfaith dialogue to administer to the needs of all individuals regardless of sexual orientation, religion, ethnicity, race, or geographic origin. In addition to providing senior meals, South Hayward Parish also provides individuals of all ages with free food and showers through its Food Distribution Program, and supports a number of other programs including Planned Parenthood, nutrition classes, and Hayward Community Action Network in the hopes of effectively building and maintaining a just and nurturing community.
