Mountain Peak Life

Mountain Midlife DinnerNutrition & Meals
Join us for a fresh, tasty, chef-cooked meal! The company alone is worth attending to enjoy. Add a delicious, nutritious meal and we are sure you'll be back for more! 

Reservations
We serve lunch at noon on Monday and Wednesday year-round at the Nederland Community Center Multipurpose Room, located at 750 Hwy 72, 1/2 mile north of the traffic circle (intersection of Highways 119 and 72) in Nederland. We rarely cancel a lunch, except on most major holidays–or on a very severe weather day. If we have to cancel for weather or disasters, we will try to call everyone who has signed up in advance.

We serve breakfast on Second Saturdays of most odd numbered months, brunch on second Sundays of most even numbered months, and dinner on fourth Fridays (until fourth quarter, when holidays push us back to third Fridays).

Call 303-258-0799 for reservations by Friday at 4 pm for lunch on Monday and by Monday at 4pm for lunch on Wednesday and as far in advance as possible for breakfasts/brunches and dinners. We now require reservations for weekend meals to be submitted by the Monday 5 p.m. prior to the meal. We appreciate your advance planning and reservations to ensure we have enough food for all.

We also offer signup for these dinners and breakfasts/brunches on our Meetup site.

If you are a first-timer and you haven't made a reservation, please swing by anyway–we typically have enough to accommodate a drop-in visitor!

Contributions
Lunch:
 We request a contribution of $5 per lunch from adults age 60+ and require $8.25 per meal from guests under age 60.
Breakfast/Brunch: We request a contribution of $5 per breakfast/brunch from adults age 60+ and require $9 per meal from guests under age 60.
Dinner: We request a contribution of $5 per dinner from adults age 60+ and require $10 per meal from guests under age 60.

This request is made of those attending meals served on site and those receiving home delivered meals. No one age 60+ is turned away for inability to pay and the anonymous contributions are not tracked. Guests under age 60 are required by our federal/state grant program to pay the above-mentioned Guest Fee. The total cost of the meal is $14.64 for lunches and $15.13 per person for other meals. We cover the difference required as a local cash match thanks to our donors and other sources.

Nutrition Counseling
Our local Boulder County Area Agency on Aging offers free one-on-one Nutrition Counseling to adults age 60+. Please call 303-441-4710 to make an appointment with Patricia Murphy, Registered Dietitian. Patti presents nutrition information regularly (every few months) at our lunches and may be able to piggyback a private session for you in Nederland during one of her visits here. Otherwise, she can meet you at her office at Broadway and Iris in Boulder.

Home Delivery
Adults 60+ who are unable to leave their homes unassisted may qualify for our home delivered meals, delivered Mondays and Wednesdays around 1:00 p.m. (We do not offer home delivery of our breakfasts/brunches and dinners at this time.)

Our volunteers deliver hot, nutritious meals twice a week. Frozen meals may also be available to those in need and we encourage you to contact us for meal deliveries following hospitalization, during rehabilitation or serious illness.

Please contact Serene Karplus, Nederland Area Seniors Director at 303-258-0799, Admin@MountainPeakLife.org OR Colleen Sinclair, Boulder County Area Agency on Aging's Mountain Options Counselor at 303-258-3068, csinclair@bouldercounty.org to register for this program.
