Try the Community Center for lunch
Sandoval County Senior Centers serve noontime meals on site and homebound meals for seniors unable to come to the center. The noontime meals are a great opportunity to eat a well-balanced meal and spend some time visiting with other members of the community.
Meal service at the Placitas Community Center begins at noon and continues until about 12:20 p.m. Residents who are 60 years of age or older may enjoy lunch for $1.50. People under 60 years of age are welcome—including children—but must pay $4.50 per meal. The seniors are served first, while those under 60 will be served at 12:15 p.m.
For further information about the lunch program, call the Placitas Community Center at 867-3196.
