In-person Dining

Tuesday, July 27th, by emergency order of the interim city manager, any person attending the City of Irvine’s In-Person Congregate Meal Program must provide proof of vaccination and photo ID to participate in the program.  This order is put in place to help reduce the spread of COVID-19, and particularly the Delta Variant, among our senior population. If you have been vaccinated against COVID-19, please bring your vaccination record and a picture ID with you the next time you come in to eat lunch in person. We will only need to see proof of vaccination and picture ID once. Participants who are unable or do not wish to provide proof of vaccination, will be given a frozen meal to take home from our Grab-N-Go program.

The Congregate dining hours of operations and accommodations will be limited to the following:

  • Hours of Dining: 11:30 a.m.–12:30 p.m. (seating begins at 11 a.m.)

  • Days of Services: Monday through Friday

  • Location: Lakeview Senior Center

  • Reservations Required: Call 949-724-6900 48 hours in advance to reserve seating
