A few readers have written in asking how they can help the Bayside Community Center. Its senior lunch program has lost funding and stands to close after 23 years of serving hot lunches to Linda Vista’s seniors.

In an e-mail I received from Jorge Riquelme, Bayside’s executive director, announcing the development last week, he asked supporters to consider making a donation to help create an alternative to the county-funded lunch program.

Here’s part of that e-mail:

Connie Curran, our Senior Program Director is working with the seniors to discuss ways to replace this program with healthy and affordable alternatives. We welcome your ideas and suggestions.

Please also consider making a financial donation to Bayside Community Center in support of the Congregate Lunch Service. $25.00 will provide a week (M-F) of nutritional meals for a deserving senior in our Congregate Lunch Program.

Bayside Community Center is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Bayside’s Federal Tax Identification Number is: 95-1652902.

You can make a donation instantly online via PayPal by clicking here: http://www.baysidecc.org/main/

Or you can send a check or money order by mail to:
