Londonderry on the Tred Avon Supports Local Farmers, Residents Embrace Local Produce
Easton, Md. – Londonderry on the Tred Avon promotes wellness of mind and body through all of its programs and activities. Maintaining and improving one’s wellness is a critical part of healthy aging, with proper nutrition playing a critical role.
Under the leadership of Londonderry’s Executive Chef, Chelsea Coombs, Londonderry has made a commitment to educating residents about the importance of proper nutrition and healthy and balanced eating. Coombs’ mantra, “if you eat well, you feel well,” guides all aspects of the culinary operations of the Community.
“It has been a joy working with our residents to add more fresh and seasonal ingredients into their diets,” said Coombs. “On the whole, they have embraced the changes as we have reimagined their favorite dishes in a healthier way on our menus and made local produce more accessible.”
A key part of this change has been working with local farmers to supply the produce and seafood used in the Londonderry kitchen.
“I am passionate about preparing freshest food possible for our residents,” continued Coombs. “The best way to do that is to partner with local farmers and watermen to stock our shelves. It is also important to me that we support the suppliers here in our own community, especially during these challenging times.”
In addition to utilizing local produce on the Londonderry menu, Coombs also introduced a farmer’s market on the Londonderry campus to give residents easy access to fresh fruits, vegetables, and eggs in for their own kitchens.
