Changes in HSRC Senior Meal Pick-Up Locations Begin January 3

HSRC will open a pop-up meal site for those age 60 or older in McKinleyville in January, in partnership with the McKinleyville Senior Center.

The weekly meal distribution, beginning Tuesday, Jan. 3, 2023, will include five frozen meals prepared and flash frozen in the Heritage Café central kitchen at HSRC in Eureka.

Pick-up will be either drive-through or walk-up on Tuesdays from 11:30 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. in the parking lot of the McKinleyville Senior Center at 1620 Pickett Road.

Reservations are required. Please call 707-496-7036, preferably at least one week in advance.

Monthly menus can be found on the HSRC website here. A contribution of $3.50 per meal is suggested, but not required. No diner age 60 or older will be denied meals if unable to contribute.

Weekly meal pick-ups at HSRC’s Heritage Café at the Arcata Community Center will be discontinued as of January 2023 in order to provide this new pop-up service in McKinleyville. The last day for Arcata meal pick-up will be Tuesday, Dec. 27, 2022, but in-person dining at the Arcata Heritage Café continues Wednesdays through Fridays from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.
