Reservations and Special Requests

We respectfully request advance reservations so that we may best meet the dietary requirements of all diners.

Special Diets

We are happy to meet special dietary needs, such as diabetic, controlled sodium and low fat/low cholesterol diets.


Upon request, we provide hot or frozen carryout meals for those who need fast and nutrition meals to go. In addition, additional meals can be purchased at full (guest) price for anyone who wants to take home an extra prepared meal that can be easily reheated for dinner.

Contact your local dining center to make reservations, request special dietary meals and get information about upcoming activities. See locations below.

Health and Wellness

Lutheran Social Service partners with local organizations and agencies to offer health maintenance services at nutrition sites throughout the state.

Services such as health and safety checks, nutrition information, and foot care are provided by the local public health staff or area clinics; those agencies may set fees and eligibility criteria for the services provided. We have found these services to be highly valued by older adults and participation is optional.


This service is made possible in part under the Federal Older Americans Act through an award from the Minnesota River Area Agency on Aging®. Inc. Under an Area plan approved by the Minnesota Board on Aging.
