Sunday dinner pledge

Aaron Blight, owner of Home Instead Senior Care in Winchester, wants to help encourage families to make time for Sunday dinners with their senior loved ones.

To encourage families to make time for these meals, the Home Instead Senior Care Foundation will donate $1 to Meals on Wheels America (up to $20,000 total through July 31) for each person that commits to regularly scheduling family dinners at SundayDinnerPledge.com. Pledging to have a sit-down dinner with loved ones will help to ensure other seniors will have a quality meal through the Meals on Wheels program.

To help families across the country host their own Sunday dinner, Home Instead Senior Care has partnered with celebrity chef and mother of four, Melissa d’Arabian, to develop a year’s worth of healthy, easy-to-make recipes and shopping guides. Additional resources include tips for how to involve seniors in meal planning and preparation, pre- and post-dinner activities and meal plans for healthy, inexpensive meals that all generations can enjoy.

More information about the program is available by calling 540-722-8750.
