Solutions project in action - "Cookin' for a Cause".
Challenge: Kisco Senior Living, a national chain
of independent and assisted living communities, identified a goal
to improve food services and quality for the residents.
Response: SHARED worked with Kisco Senior Living
to develop the “Cookin' for a Cause” project, an innovative business
solution that also supports the SHARED portfolio of projects.
implement “Cookin for a Cause”, Kisco Senior Living is collecting
recipes from residents, families and staff to create a cookbook
to preserve and share cherished family recipes. These recipes are
tested and served at the different communities to bring a broader
and healthier variety of meals to residents. Cook-off contests and
tastings at different communities are two of the fun ways Kisco
Senior Living has used to collect recipes, actively engaging residents,
families and employees.
Opportunity: The proceeds from the sale of the cookbook
will be donated to SHARED to provide medical care to orphans and
other needed children in southern Africa . Grandparents are most
often the primary caretakers of the more than 14 million AIDS orphans.
Kisco's “Cookin' for a Cause” project is nicknamed “Grandparents
for Grandparents”, honoring the special status of seniors everywhere.
Not only does Kisco Senior Living meet the goal
of bringing better food to its residents as well as engaging residents
and staff in this process but also helps to care for orphaned and
abandoned children. And the project is fun for everyone!
