This article reports that several residents at Twining Village, a Diakon Lutheran senior living community in Holland, Pennsylvania, participated in a Traveling Chefs program in May 2008. The program featured freshly prepared Mediterranean cuisine by two of Cura Hospitality's chefs, the facility's foodservice contractor. Randy Van Orden, general manager for Cura at Twining Village, says that offering world flavors is particularly important to today's seniors because they have traveled extensively for leisure or work.
