Learn & Lunch Bunch

The Jewish Federation of Dutchess County and hosts a special program for seniors each week.


Every Wednesday from 11:30am to 1:00pm, folks can enjoy a healthy meal while listening to a presentation from one of our fabulous speakers!  Program topics range from history to music, health to sports, family relationships to local politics.


These lunches and presentations are open to the public. A $6.00 donation is requested. No one is turned away due to lack of funds. For  guests who do not wish to have the full meal, coffee, cake, and the presentation are available for $4.00. 


All programs are held at 118 South Grand Avenue, Poughkeepsie, NY.


For information, contact the Jewish Federation office by phone (845) 471-9811 or email.


This program is partially funded by the Ann & Abe Effron Fund - Donor Advised and The Bernard and Shirley Handel Foundation Donor Advised Fund of the Community Foundations of the Hudson Valley.
