The article focuses on the grab-and-go program created by Cheryl Torre-Rastetter, senior general manager at Sherwood Oaks of Cranberry Township in Pennsylvania. She says they had residents calling to see if they could get a salad or a sandwich instead of dining in the dining halls. They sell sandwiches, salads and products that they already have in carts. She also developed the Corner Market that offers whole pies, in-house made breads and fresh fruit cups.
