Lunch at a significantly more favourable price than the one prevailing in the market is a way to provide proper nutrition in the third age.

A great part of the pensioner population lives in so called single-person or two-member older households, and often in difficult social circumstances. Some of them due to illness are not able to prepare meals regularly. In order to provide correct nutrition to its socially disadvantaged members, since 2004, dining services (lunch) have been organised by the Pensioners Association of the city of Rijeka at a significantly more favourable price than the one prevailing in the market.

The service is co-financed by the City of Rijeka within the tender for programmes and projects in the field of health protection and social welfare.
