As the daily routine of program planning and organization returns to some semblance of normalcy, Perry Wellness Center peers are once again enjoying a hearty selection of menu items for breakfast and lunch. Home-cooked meals often use vegetables grown on site or brought by local farmers. They are sometimes supplemented with Subway sandwiches and GasNGo fried chicken dinners.
Peers appreciate the variety of meal offerings, and casual meals promote group socialization. After a morning of groups and other structured activities, peers look forward to lunch with others in the cafeteria.
PWC founder and CEO Stuart Perry explains, “We want to be sure that our peers safely mix with other peers and try to return to their former friendships from before the shutdown.” He adds, “Like the peers and staff, I also enjoy our meals.”
