At Perry Wellness Center, wholesome breakfasts and lunches are served to all peers and staff each weekday. Peers with hearty appetites will often bring snacks from home for a mid-morning break.
Recently long-time peer Mary Greene brought a sleeve of Oreo cookies from home. Like a well-mannered hostess, Miss Mary offered some of the cookies to other peers. She noted, “I guess they are watching their waistlines. I eat one cookie and smile.”
By the end of the morning, however, only one cookie was left in the sleeve. Miss Mary found a safe place to enjoy her last cookie. She was encouraged to share her excellent cooking skills and prepare tasty treats to bring and share with friends.
