Eat Fresh, Eat Local is a Unique Signature Program that Focuses On:

  1. Foster Community Connections

    Working with local farms we are able to support the community while being a good neighbor to those around us.

  2. Fresh, Local & Seasonal Menus

    One of the best parts about life in New England is access to a variety of great local foods in every season.

  3. Enhancing the Mind and Body

    Food plays a large part in body and brain health and pay close attention to this when designing our menus to offer the best foods for the mind and body.

Supporting Local Serves Us All

Our communities collaborate with local growers and producers of vegetables, fruits, herbs, seafood and meats to create a dining experience that focuses on local tastes, freshness, and seasonal produce. We have learned over the years that age does not lessen the desire for fresh, quality dining, it often enhances it!

At Northbridge we believe there are several benefits of sourcing produce locally. Firstly, it promotes the local economy by supporting small-scale farmers and their livelihoods. It also helps to reduce our carbon footprint by eliminating the need for transportation over long distances – in harmony with our Senior Green initiative. Local produce is often fresher as it is harvested closer to the time of purchase, which means it can retain more of its nutritional value. Additionally, locally grown produce is often grown using sustainable farming practices, which can help to reduce the environmental impact of food production.

We are proud to be able to offer this wonderful dining experience in all of our communities. Our chefs are some of the most creative in the New England culinary industry and are proud to source local ingredients from dozens of local farms and purveyors.
