The Collins Senior Center located at 3000 Texas Boulevard reopened back on Monday, March 15th after almost a year of being closed due to COVID-19. The senior center is open Monday-Friday from 11:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. But at that time the kitchen was still closed, they still served box-lunch meals but nothing was prepared there, well that's about to change.

Coming up Monday, May 17, the kitchen at the Collins Senior Center will reopen for free lunches from 11:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.
