Cook

Our Center’s cook prepares beans, heavy stew or soup and cornbread on Tuesdays and a meat dish on Fridays. Our menu is included on the monthly calendar.

Donation of Food

We ask that our members either provide a side dish to add to the luncheon or make a $5 donation. For those bringing food, each member should bring a covered dish or dessert large enough to feed 6 to 8 members. (Please note: 1 can of vegetables will not feed 6 to 8 members). Couples should bring two small covered dishes or one large dish. Food should be cooked, ready to serve and at the center by 11 a.m. 

Cash Donation

If you do not bring a dish/dessert we ask for a donation of $5. Cookies or breakfast treats are not considered a covered dish but are appreciated as a morning snack. Upon arrival, please be sure to sign in with the door greeter and mark the correct column - food or donation.

First Time Guest

55 years or older, no charge for lunch.

Serving Order for Lunch

The coordinator will call table row numbers (1 to 4) for you to get your lunch. Please go through the food line before picking a dessert. Door greeters, guests and birthdays get to go first. Please take only what you can eat.

MEMBER HEALTH POLICY

Members of the Jenks Senior Citizens (JSC) must be able to take care of their own personal and health needs.  Caregivers are welcome to accompany members and will be solely responsible for the health and well-being of that member.  The Board reserves the right to terminate a JSC membership after three incidents that involve emergency personnel, or the incidents interfere with the daily activities of the membership or the Coordinator, or if the incidents create an unsafe situation for the membership.
