Our Food Services Industries serves over 40,000 meals a year, and has been doing so since 1980. The majority of those meals are provided under contract with the Taylor County Commission on Aging at six Senior Centers throughout the county, including the Meals-on-Wheels Program in Medford. In addition, our passenger routes routinely deliver meals to many homebound seniors in outlying rural areas who would otherwise not be able to access the congregate meal sites. We also provide meals for the Medford Headstart Program and a hot lunch program for clients and staff of BRI. All menus are approved by a registered nutritionist.
In addition, we utilize our catering license to provide meals to civic organizations and local businesses. Our large commercial kitchen is equipped with a walk-in cooler/freezer, convection ovens, steam table, a commercial mixer, and a commercial dishwasher.
Training opportunities in food preparation and cleanup, dishwashing, table bussing, and serving are available to all of our clients. Many have been placed in community-based jobs after receiving training in our kitchen.
