Celebrating Senior Living Culture Through Food
Residents within senior living communities have rich and varied traditions which are oftentimes celebrated through food. When it comes to meals for historical, holiday, and religious observance, a surprising opportunity presents itself among residents from different cultures. Since senior living communities offer formal dining options with restaurant-style seating, residents can invite friends and neighbors within the community to partake in traditional meals. This provides a chance for residents to taste and experience a different way of life. Foodservice teams are in a special position to support celebratory food preparation requirements and ensure a worry-free, meaningful dining event while encouraging diversity through meals ranging from traditional Christmas Dinner to Kosher-friendly preparations for Passover. Our professionally trained chefs have passion when it comes to creating delicious cuisine, focusing on nutrition and visual appeal to encourage healthy appetites in residents.
Senior Dining Brings Communities Together
The Shabbat Group in Juno Beach, Florida noticed their numbers were nearly doubled during their Kosher-friendly Passover meal. For this meal, the practicing Jewish community within the senior living community invited their friends to partake in a Seder dinner, resulting in a satisfied group of residents who used food as a common ground for learning more about eachother. The letter below highlights the event, giving kudos to Thomas Cuisine leaders Tony and Chef Matt for their service and culinary accommodations.
