The Council on Aging, Inc. serving St. Clair County has a program to help seniors eat a healthy meal at a local restaurant while spending time socializing with one another. The program,called Friends Eating and Socializing Together (FEAST), if for those that are 60 and older. Participants can stop by the Council’s downtown Port Huron location and obtain a coupon to eat at the Four Star Grille Restaurant in Marysville.
The suggested donation for the voucher is $3 and can be used on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 11 to 2 pm at the Four Star. Associate Administrator for the Council on Aging, Jyme Hager said, “several seniors take advantage of the program, and they don’t even have to be a St. Clair County resident.” Family members or friends under the age of 60 can join the senior, but are responsible to pay the full price. Hager explained that money from the council makes up a portion of the payment to the restaurant, and the seniors are asked to leave a tip. Hager ended by saying, “The program helps the seniors get a good quality meal at a good price.”
