New LifeStream Senior Cafe Opens at the Muncie Unity Center

LifeStream Services has added a new senior café site in Muncie at the Unity Center. This is the fourteenth senior café that LifeStream coordinates. The cafes provide hot, nutritious meals throughout the week to area seniors. Meals are provided on a donation basis for those 60 years and older and their spouses. Those under the age of 60 can enjoy a meal for a small fee.

The site will host its Grand Opening on Friday, December 2 at 11am. LifeStream and the Unity Center invite area seniors to enjoy a hot, nutritious meal provided by Bateman, learn more about the café, and enjoy fun activities while making new friends in the community.

The site is located at 515 S. Madison St., Muncie, IN 47302 and is now open for lunch each week on Tuesday and Friday at 11am. Reservations should be made a day in advance. For more information, please contact Dana Pierce by calling 765-759-1121 or email dpierce@lifestreaminc.org

Volunteers are always needed and welcomed at LifeStream cafés. Volunteers of all ages can enjoy the lunch they help serve as a thank you for their service.
