Lunch Program

We will offer dine-in and pick up hot meals Monday - Friday at 12 noon. Registration is required to participate in the lunch program. Email Isabel Jackson or call 919-245-4256 for more information or to register for our Lunch Program.

At this time we are only accepting new applications for those county residents aged 60 and over who can pick up a meal at either the Seymour Center or Passmore Center. 

Individuals and those in group quarters will only be considered if they can identify someone to pick up their meal. Staff and volunteers are able to assist with delivery to individual homes for those who rely on public transportation.

Fee Payment and Financial Assistance

The Orange County Senior Centers strive to be accessible and welcoming to all seniors.  If you want to participate in senior center fee-based activities and are unable, or unwilling, to pay a required fee, you may still participate.

A selection of free activities and programs are available to seniors age 55 and over*. Events/activities not eligible for financial assistance or waivers may include, but not limited to: trips/travel destinations; admissions or fees for center-sponsored activities at external venues; and activities held as fundraisers by the Friends organizations hosted at the senior centers.    

Accordingly, income-based financial assistance is available for most senior center offerings.   Individuals interested in wellness programs can contact Wellness Coordinator, Latonya Brown, for more information at 919-245-4270.  Seniors who require financial support to participate in other programs can contact Passmore Center Operations Manager, Dawn Smith, at 919-245-2021, or Seymour Center Operations Manager, Cydnee Sims, at 919-245-4250.  In determining eligibility for financial assistance, the individual’s financial status is compared to current federal poverty guidelines.   

All inquiries are strictly confidential.

*Some programs are exempt as their funding is provided by the Older American Act (only for people age 60 and over)
