Lunch Cafe

Enjoy lunch at the J every Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday with our Lunch Cafe offerings. Local caterer, Carly Balmer, prepares a light, dairy, nut-free meal.

Lunch costs $5.50/meal and we ask that all participants complete a registration form for the Washtenaw County Office of Community and Economic Development (see link below). This helps the J secure county funding that supports those aged 60 and over to enjoy lunch for a suggested donation of $3/meal. No one 60 and over will be turned away for inability to meet the suggested donation.

Please call (734) 971-0990 at least one day in advance to reserve a lunch or click here to register online.
Lunches must be reserved by noon the previous day.

Reminder: a Washtenaw County registration form must be completed to participate in our Lunch Cafe!
