SCES Nutrition renews partnership with SHS Culinary

Chicken pot pie and salad were the main courses for the grab-and-go gourmet meals distributed by SCES Nutrition Director Meghan Ostrander in November. Now in its second year, the program is a partnership with the Somerville High School Culinary Program.

Somerville-Cambridge Elder Services (SCES) is pleased to announce renewal of a partnership that provides grab-and-go gourmet meals for local older adults through the Somerville High School Culinary Vocation program.

A limited number of gourmet meals will be available each month. Prior signup is required. This is the second year of the partnership, and SCES Nutrition Director Meghan Ostrander is excited to see it return.

“The meals are excellent, really gourmet,” she said. “We got rave reviews last year.”

The meals are available for residents of Somerville and Cambridge age 60 or older, as well as their partner under 60, or dependent with a disability under 60.  Call SCES and ask for the Nutrition Department to sign up.

The meals are available on the third Friday of each month. Pickup is at 2:30 p.m. at the SCES Lobby at 61 Medford St in Somerville.
