Lunch Menus and Reservations

We introduced our new Head Chef Cher Rainbolt in mid-November and have enjoyed many fine meals she has cooked for us!

Thank you, Cathie David, for continuing to cook for us on Mondays - we enjoy your meals!

And a shout-out to Front-of-House Manager Chastity Lamb - thank you!

We are always seeking volunteer or paid assistant cooks for our Mountain MidLife meals and are open to hearing from everyone interested.  We welcome to our kitchen staff:  Britta Mayo, Abby Ruge, Paul Stadler, Tamela vanOsdol. 

Join us for a fresh, tasty, "home-cooked" meal!  The company alone is worth attending to enjoy - add a delicious, nutritious meal and we are sure you'll be back for more!

We serve Lunch at noon on Monday and Wednesday year-round at the Nederland Community Center Multipurpose Room, located at 750 Hwy 72, 1/2 mile north of the traffic circle (intersection of Highways 119 and 72) in Nederland. We rarely cancel a lunch, except on Memorial Day Monday, Labor Day Monday, July 4th, Christmas or New Years Eves or Days - or on a severe weather day.  If we have to cancel for weather or disasters, we will try to call everyone who has signed up in advance.

We serve Breakfast on Second Saturdays of most odd numbered months and Brunch on Second Sundays of most even numbered months (check our Mountain MidLife page on this site for updates) and Dinner on Fourth Fridays (until fourth quarter, when holidays push us back to Third Fridays). 

Call 303-258-0799 for reservations by Friday at 4pm for Lunch on Monday and by Monday at 4pm for Lunch on Wednesday and a week in advance (if possible) for Breakfasts and Dinners. Calling a week ahead for the Mountain MidLife meals is helpful for our food purchasing, as it is tough for us to predict numbers for these events. We also offer signup for these dinners and breakfasts/brunches on our site at www.Meetups.com/Mountain-MidLife-Social-Group

If you are a first-timer and you haven't made a reservation, please swing by anyway - we typically have enough to accommodate a drop-in visitor!

DINNER:  We request a contribution of $5 per Dinner from adults age 60 and over and require $10 per meal from guests under age 60.

This request is made of those attending meals served on site and those receiving home delivered meals.
No one over the age of 60 is turned away for inability to pay and your anonymous contributions are not tracked.

Guests under age 60 are required by our federal/state grant program to pay the above-mentioned Guest Fee.

The total cost of the meal is $14.64 for lunches and $15.13 per person for other meals.

Nederland Area Seniors covers the difference required as a local cash match thanks to our donors and other sources.

Home Delivery

Seniors over the age of 60 who are unable to leave their homes unassisted may qualify for our home delivered meals, delivered Mondays and Wednesdays around 1:00pm.  (We do not offer home delivery of our Breakfasts/Brunches and Dinners at this time.)

Our volunteers deliver hot, nutritious meals twice a week.  Frozen meals may be available to those in need and we encourage you to contact us for meal deliveries following hospitalization, during rehabilitation or serious illness.

Nutrition Counseling

Our local Boulder County Area Agency on Aging offers free one-on-one Nutrition Counseling to adults over age 60. Please call 303-441-4710 to make an appointment with Patricia Murphy, Registered Dietitian. Patti presents nutrition information regularly (every few months) at our lunches and may be able to piggyback a private session for you in Nederland during one of her visits here. Otherwise, she can meet you at her office at Broadway and Iris in Boulder.


We survey regularly to determine the impact of the senior nutrition program on participants.  If you have attended a lunch, dinner, or breakfast with us within the past year and would like to participate in the survey, please click on the attachment below marked "NAS Nutrition Survey 2016 BW Mld 09-16".  Print, complete, and mail to us at P O Box 188, Nederland CO 80466 or drop off at our office in the Nederland Community Center.  Thank you for your time in completing this information!
