Emeritus of Hagerstown, part of Emeritus Senior Living, will deliver 10,000 meals to senior citizens in 60 days and visit them to ensure they are able to get the nutrition they need every day. “Seniors may not get the nutrition they need for a variety of reasons,” said Christine Ogden, executive director. “For some, it's due to a lack of financial resources; for others, a lack of reliable transportation. And in many cases, isolation and depression have caused seniors to lose interest in cooking and eating healthfully.” Emeritus of Hagerstown has long been providing outreach to seniors who live at home through their home visits program, where senior living professionals visit residents in their home to identify where they could use help and connects them with the services they need.  “We are committed to making sure that every senior in need in this area finds the combination of programs and services that serves them best, even if they do not live with us,” Ogden said.

Catering a meal fit for the highest-ranking officer in the U.S. military started out to be a bit nerve-wracking but turned into the lesson of a lifetime for culinary arts students at Franklin County Career and Technology Center. Colleen Blubaugh of Waynesboro was nervous about serving Adm. Mike Mullen, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, when he visited the Capitol Theatre on Feb. 10 as part of a public-speaking engagement. "I was in charge of getting all the dining room stuff, so I was pretty nervous trying not to forget anything," Blubaugh said.

Making soup is typically easy and economical. Add ingredients to a commercially-prepared soup. For example, dress up classic tomato soup with fresh-cut tomatoes and a little basil, or choose an easy recipe with ingredients family or friends will like. Homemade soup is a good candidate for a slow cooker, but there also are recipes that can be put together to make a meal quickly. If using a recipe for the first time, follow instructions exactly. Once you are familiar with the recipes, consider adding additional ingredients, such as extra vegetables, to suit your taste.

“Welcome to 1997.”  That was my brother's response to my message, “I have texting!” If it's 1997, I joked, then my son is 2 and won't be going to college this fall. I'd gladly turn back the clock to that year. But, alas, I can't. Besides, my son is the reason I wanted unlimited texting anyway. I finally had to give in to this technology because I feared that I wouldn't hear from him otherwise this fall. Well, perhaps he'd call if his college meal plan ran out of points.

Eating a variety of foods is recommended for health, but trying to overhaul family's eating habits can be a challenge. You will be most successful if you aim for gradual changes, rather than making an issue of food. Strive to plan and provide regular meals and snacks. Involve the whole family in healthful habits at snack and mealtime.  At snack and mealtime, limit low-nutrient foods, such as chips or cookies, because these foods have little nutrition and are high in calories, sugar and fat. Replace them with a variety of fruits and vegetables as a part of snacks or meals each day. By keeping healthful foods on hand, it will be easier to offer your child healthful options.
