UPDATE ON THE SENIOR MEAL PROGRAM
Dallas County has authorized the City of Garland PRCAD to continue serving and delivering meals to currently registered seniors.
Any new seniors wishing to participate in the meal program, please call Garland Senior Activity Center.
The approval process may take a few days, so please be patient. Once Dallas County has approved those new individuals, those seniors will need to drive to Garland Senior Activity Center for takeout meals only. New participants will not be able to have their meals delivered. Meals will be served Monday through Friday only.
Interested citizens may call Garland Senior Activity Center and speak to staff if interested.
