Dick Eardley Senior Center

In light of the first confirmed coronavirus (COVID-19) case in Ada county, the City of Boise is taking extra steps to promote the health and safety of our community. Effective immediately, all programming at the Dick Eardley Senior Center (690 Robbins Rd.) is postponed and the center is closed to the public. This closure will be in place until further notice.

Although the center is closed, the kitchen will remain in use by Metro Meals on Wheels to continue vital meal prep and lunch services. Seniors who rely on the affordable lunch option normally offered at the senior center can still pick up lunch with curbside service offered from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. on weekdays.
