Ware Veterans Eat Lunch Free!

June 3, 2024 through May 30, 2025

The meals are provided through the generosity of former Ware Selectmen John Morrin, the Ware Veteran Fund and the Ware Veterans Carnival. Mr. Morrin explained his intentions in the following statement.

 "When I created the carnival, I decided to also create the Ware Veteran Fund to use the proceeds of the carnival to benefit the veterans of Ware. What better way to recognize and thank our older veterans than providing lunch for them in a welcoming place like the Senior Center."

For veterans to take advantage of this offer they must call the Ware Senior Center 413-967-9645 by noon the business day before they wish to come for lunch and place their name on the list.

Meals are served daily, Monday through Friday from 11:30am-12pm.

Menus and more information are available on the Council on Aging page of or by stopping by the Ware Senior Center 1 Robbins Road, Monday through Friday from 8-4pm.

*Spouses and family do not qualify, only widows/widowers with valid VA Identification. If the veteran is alive, then only the veteran is eligible.
