The Escondido Senior Nutrition Program has returned to in person congregate meals. Congregate meals are nutritionally balanced meals served indoors at the Park Avenue Café and are designed to sustain and improve participant's health and reduce isolation by promoting socialization. Seating is limited due to construction, and reservations are required. All participants must fill out enrollment paperwork, all forms need to be updated yearly.

  • A large auditorium for dances, Bingo, exercise, and meetings.
  • Joslyn Lounge - Morning conversation
  • Tournament-quality shuffleboard courts.
  • A library complete with soft/hard cover books, and a reference section.
