VPR Cafe: Localvore Seniors

Burlington Free Press
Maria Jakobeit, Manager of Food Services, in the kitchen at Cathedral Square

Seniors at Cathedral Square in Burlington are eating local thanks to the resourcefulness of Maria Jakobeit, Manager of Food Services.  Maria has given favorites on the Cathedral Square menu a Localvore twist with local meats and vegetables.  Melissa Pasanen, who writes for The Burlington Free Press, visited the dining room at Cathedral Square.  Today she tells us about how the menu is changing and how residents are eating it up.
