Nestled behind the Tualatin Community Park and surrounded by lush Douglas Firs sits a vibrant meeting place for the city of Tualatin, the Juanita Pohl Center. This community hub bubbles with activity, offering social outings, drop in-activities, and classes on everything from Yoga to Hummingbird identification. And now, twice a week, visitors can share a meal with friends and acquaintances alike.
Meals on Wheels People provides congregate lunch at the Juanita Pohl Center Tuesdays and Thursdays from noon-1 pm for folks aged 60 or older and their caregivers. Patrons can meet with their neighbors, sip free coffee, and savor a nutritious, hot meal.
“I really enjoy the fresh fruit and veggie plates…I don’t usually eat many of those at home,” says Randy of Tualatin.
“The food is always different and delicious, and I appreciate that they never run out of coffee!” states Mary of Sherwood.
Meals on Wheels People follows nutritional guidelines to ensure that every meal is heart-healthy. A meal consists of a starter, a main course, and a dessert for every patron. Affordably priced at $9.05 per meal, participants are asked to contribute to the cost, but no one is turned away.
When asked what her favorite part of congregate lunch is, Judy, of Tualatin, responded, “I feel like I’m at home; I feel so welcome. I love getting to catch up with my friends.”
In addition to our regular services, celebrate diversity by joining us for a culturally traditional meal offered on the first Tuesday of every month.
We’re excited to have you!
