altRECOGNITION – Samuel Ackerman, of Cumberland, is one of two Rhode Island students who have been selected as delegates to the 52nd annual United States Senate Youth Program (USSYP) held this month in Washington, D.C. Each year this competitive merit-based program brings 104 of the most outstanding high school students to Washington, D.C. for an intensive week-long study of the federal government and the people who lead it.

In recent years, homemade food for dogs has become a popular alternative to commercial canned or dry varieties. Nonetheless, it is crucial that your canine’s diet is a balanced one. Dogs require protein, based on their age, size and breed. Fiber and carbohydrates are other key components to a balanced meal plan for your pooch.

If you went to Jewish camp, you might remember the thrill at mail time when you received a care package from yourbubbe. Fast forward a few decades and now it’s your child (or grandchild) on the receiving end. You want his/her care package to include something more substantial than squirt cheese and gummy bears. Homemade macaroons for your camper to share will be a huge hit! Just be sure to check with the camp to see if it’s acceptable to send food.

Contrary to popular belief and from my experience, seniors don’t love buffets and they aren’t very interested in sandwiches and newfangled wraps. But they will save space for dessert, and they can teach a seasoned chef a thing or two in the kitchen.
These are nuggets of wisdom I’ve learned in the last 11 years as the Director of Food & Dining at EPOCH Assisted Living on Blackstone Blvd. Blackstone residents dine with us three times a day, and we take that responsibility seriously. We talk with them about their experiences as well as what they like or don’t like.
