Food & Dining

Food, Glorious Food!
– Oliver Twist.

Oliver and his friends got that right! We know how central a good meal can be to a senior’s daily life and at The Shores we take that seriously. Our chefs are all true professionals with decades of experience and formal culinary or hospitality educations. Their passion, innovation and food-forward vision has birthed vegetable and herb gardens, the Chef’s Table program, our Junior Chef Program, Chef Center Stage, interactive food events, and cooking demonstrations. 

At our monthly “Food Committee” meetings chefs gain knowledge of the specific preferences, customs, and medical needs of each resident as well. There is no dietary restriction that cannot be deliciously accommodated at The Shores. 

Add to that the presence of staff nutritionists and dieticians, and you have a team of creative minds planning exciting, delicious and nutritious meals for our community every day.
