Our 2024 Spring and Summer Menus


The arrival of spring brings a burst of color and freshness to our surroundings, and for the team at Commonwealth Senior Living, it signifies a time to revitalize our residents' palates with a seasonal array of flavors. Our approach to dining is not just about satisfying hunger-it's about promoting wellness, sustainability, and community.

Farm-to-Table Dining

It's no secret that a healthy diet is a key component of well-being, especially as we age. We take this to heart, sourcing 85% of the produce in our meals from local farms through a partnership with Produce Source Partners. This farm-to-table program pledges to support our local farmers, reduce our environmental impact, and ensure our residents receive the freshest, most nutrient-rich ingredients possible.

Benefits of Local Produce

By partnering with local farms, we celebrate the diversity of our regional agriculture and ensure our residents enjoy the best. This program also fosters a stronger connection between our community and the food we eat, promoting mindfulness and appreciation for the meals our residents enjoy. 

Revolution in the Dining Room

In many of our community dining rooms, a Babylon Microfarm stands as a testament to innovation and sustainability. These hydroponic marvels grow an abundance of seasonal greens that are incorporated into our daily menus. The ease of harvest and the environmental advantages of micro farming are impressive, but the genuine joy for our residents to witness the growth process and harvest fresh ingredients for their meals is another reason we love our Babylon Microfarms. 

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 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

At Commonwealth Senior Living, we bake our bread daily, not just to complement our meals but to evoke the warmth and wellness associated with this timeless staple. Our bread is more than a side dish; it's an invitation to our residents to share in the familiar and the comforting.
