Friendship Cafe

Friendship Cafe is a space for seniors to eat with their peers, and enjoy experiences together. Friendship Cafe provides the much-needed social connections that are proven to improve both health and wellness in seniors. Meals at Friendship Cafe are provided by local food purveyors, with additional meal options for those who need them. All Friendship Cafe locations are open Monday through Friday from 9:30am-12pm. 

On December 14, 2022 all of our nine Friendship Cafes will host a holiday party.  A sponsorship of $500 will underwrite the costs of the meals served that day. Your group will be invited to attend the party and spread holiday cheer. If you can do more, collect items for gift bags for the clients at the Friendship Cafe using our AmazonSmile Wishlist!

Email marykate@wakemow.org for information about sponsorship.
