    I would just like to let it be known that the Milford Senior Center is also a soup kitchen. There are two separate lunch programs. There is an 11am lunch which needs to be signed up for the day before. The lunch program that runs from 12:00-1:00 pm is open to anyone who would like to enjoy a hot meal at no cost to them. No forms to fill out. Just come in for lunch and speak to any one in the kitchen. They are happy to help.
