HSRC Senior Dining site serves all of Fortuna
It is more than a meal
It’s the best- kept secret in Fortuna: Humboldt Senior Resource Center operates a dining site open to all Fortuna residents.
Located in the dining hall at Mountain View Village, 2130 Smith Lane, it is a great place to have a delicious meal and chat with friends. The dining site is open Monday - Friday; lunch is served at noon. Those wanting to socialize can arrive as early as 10:30 am and stay as late as 1:30 pm. Our nutritious lunches meet 1/3 of the recommended dietary allowance for an older adult. For those 60 years of age and over, there is a suggested donation of $3.50 per meal. All donations are confidential and no one is ever denied a meal if unable to contribute. For those under 60, the cost is $6.
The City of Fortuna offers transportation in the Fortuna City limits for seniors (ages 50 & older) and disabled (any age). The buses operate Monday through Friday from 8:30 am – 4 pm and on the first Saturday of each month from 9 am – 12 noon. Riders may schedule rides by calling the Senior Bus for reservations at 725-7625.
Thanks to the recent renovations to the dining hall by Mountain View Village, diners enjoy friendship, food and more in a bright, cheerful spaced filled with daylight. Friendly dining site staff welcome each diner with a greeting and a smile. It is a great place to rekindle friendships, visit with people you may have known all your life, or to find new friends.
HSRC’s senior dining centers have proven to be more than just a place to eat. For older adults, the impact of a nutritious meal in the company of others is significant. Dining with others not only can lead to improved nutritional status, but it can also help to decrease isolation, loneliness and depression. Each dining site also provides opportunities to lend a hand by working as a volunteer and assisting others.
Monthly menus are available in advance, and can be found monthly in Senior News, every Tuesday in the Times Standard or online at www.humsenior.org.
To make reservations to join us for lunch at our Fortuna dining site, call Launa Salsbery, Site Coordinator, at 725-6245.
