Brandywine Living Spreads Holiday Cheer to Seniors with Gourmet Meals

December 23, 2022

Englishtown, NJ — The residents of Brandywine Living at Governor’s Crossing enjoy the holiday season with parties and fine dining but know many of their senior neighbors have a less jolly holiday. In an effort to spread cheer to local seniors in need the senior living community headed out on Friday, December 23, 2022, to deliver complimentary gourmet holiday meals.

The tradition started in 2020 when many local seniors in the community could not spend the holidays with family due to the pandemic. The leadership team of Brandywine Living quickly got into action and set out with fifty holiday meals to deliver to those in need. The program has since grown with over 100 meals delivered this year for the holiday weekend.

“I’m always proud of our team members for coming together to uplift our local community. But this year I was completely blown away by the amazing entrees created by our new Dining Services Director, Chris Masker. He has outdone himself for the sake of bringing joy to others,” commented Brittany Franco, Director of Community Relations for Brandywine Living.

Brittany along with other Brandywine team members set out in the early afternoon to hand deliver the meals to seniors in Monroe, Marlboro and Manalapan. Each meal included a traditional turkey dinner finished with creamy cheesecake.

Although restrictions for covid-19 have lessened since the pandemic, tremendous positive feedback has made this new holiday tradition a permanent one. Brandywine Living looks forward to continuing to grow their annual holiday meals program.
