Pass the fresh-baked biscuits

   Senior Services' Congregate Meal Program sets the table for seniors every weekday at Northshore Senior Center. Hot lunches are available for those 60 and older and to their spouses, as well. The suggested donation for the meals is $2.50; food stamps are accepted, but no one is ever turned away if they're not able to pay. For seniors who may live alone and for whom cooking may be difficult, these lunch outings are important in many ways. A recent innovation has been the introduction of onsite baking of fresh rolls, breadsticks, and biscuits. The center is located at 10201 East Riverside Drive, Bothell; call 425-487-2441.
