Age Friendly Cold Lake endeavours to ensure that our older people who usually eat alone attend our monthly luncheons where we gather a group of seniors and volunteers to share a good meal.


Age Friendly Cold Lake is a volunteer-driven non-profit society dedicated to making Cold Lake a healthy, supportive place for all of us as we grow older. While there are many resources available in our community, there are some seniors in our community falling through the cracks and going unnoticed. We work one-on-one with seniors to bridge the gap of needs that go unaddressed. Whether that need is based on food, healthcare, loneliness, grief, or isolation, we endeavor to address it.


Are you passionate about contributing to your community? Do you think seniors are cool? When you volunteer with Age Friendly Cold Lake, you can help older members of the community thrive. You will meet new people, learn new skills, build your confidence, and gain a sense of fulfillment.
