Menus and Reservations

Our Head Chef Cher Rainbolt celebrated her one-year anniversary in November, 2018. Congratulations, Cher! We have enjoyed many fine meals she has cooked for us!

And a shout-out to Front-of-House Manager Chastity Lamb, who has served us for over 3-1/2 years- thank you!

We are always seeking volunteer or paid assistant cooks and dishwashers for our Mountain Peak Life meals and are open to hearing from everyone interested. Call 303-258-0799 and leave a message.

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 and Dinner on most 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 Peak Life 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!

Invite a friend to a meal (lunches every Monday and Wednesday or monthly dinners or breakfasts/brunches) and offer to pick them up and drop them home afterwards. With a “requested contribution” of $5 over age 60, we offer a fun and affordable get-together with friends. We need and appreciate your anonymous meal contributions, but please ensure people know that we welcome anyone over age 60 regardless of ability to pay.

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 age 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. 

Please contact Serene Karplus, Nederland Area Seniors Director at 303-258-0799, NederlandAreaSeniors@gmail.com

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.


Register in advance with Via at 303-444-3043 or contact mobilityspecialist@viacolorado.org, then call to schedule trips at least a day ahead (wheelchair needs 48 hours notice) at 303-447-9636.

 Via's former 5-day-a-week zTrip service sponsorship has now ended.


We survey regularly to determine the impact of the senior nutrition program on participants.  Please watch for our upcoming survey monkey. Will post a link here when it is available.

Results from past surveys appear as attachments below.
