Our first initiative began as the Senior Nutrition Center of Jones County started a program at the Filling Station August 2017. Hot meals are now available to Jones County citizens over the age of 60 with reservations on Monday, Wednesday and Friday each week. Call the Senior Center of Jones County to reserve your meal (252-448-1001). In addition, the Seniors are enjoying fellowship as they work on arts and crafts that may be used to serve the community.
