Our 2023 Fall and Winter Menus

As fall arrives, we cant help but get excited about all the cozy comfort foods and pumpkin recipes that come along with it. Here at Commonwealth Senior Living, we take pride in serving our residents the most delicious and satisfying meals made with love from locally sourced ingredients. We understand that as we get older, eating well becomes increasingly important. We emphasis the incredible benefits that come with a healthy diet to our residents, including lower blood pressure, a reduced risk of heart disease, and even sharper thinking. Our signature dining programs help us provide meals that are nutritious and delicious!

Farm-to-Table Dining

At Commonwealth Senior Living, 85% of the produce our residents enjoy is sourced locally by 32 farms. This is done through a partnership with Produce Source Partners. Local produce results in more nutrient-rich meals, supports the local economy, and produces a smaller carbon footprint. Select communities also feature a Babylon Microfarm inside their dining rooms. Each year these microfarms grow thousands of plants, save hundreds of gallons of water, avoid millions of miles of food transportation, and reduce food waste by hundreds of pounds. In addition to all of these benefits, the hydroponic farming provides our residents with the freshest produce available. They're even able to help with the harvest when the plants are ready!

Today from the Bay

We're proud to partner with Sam Rust Seafood to support local fishermen and bring fresh, sustainable seafood directly to our residents. These fishermen provide scallops, oysters, shrimp, trout, bass, clams, crab, and flounder from the Chesapeake Bay with an endless supply of nutrients. Healthline says eating fish is a great source of high-quality protein, iodine, and various vitamins and minerals. One of those vitamins is vitamin D, which is a fat-soluble nutrient many people don't always get enough of. Additionally, omega-3 fatty acids help stimulate body and brain function and can ultimately reduce the risk of many diseases. We're proud to incorporate these nutrients into our residents' regular diets.

Fresh Baked Bread

There's always something nostalgic about the smell of fresh baked bread wafting through the dining room. Our fresh baked rolls and biscuits can offer a sense of familiarity to lift your mindset as you taste it.

Below is a sample menu for our fall and winter menu selections.
