Food for Thought

I want to take this opportunity to tell you about the wonderful collaboration between the Wayne County Department of Aging and Youth and Wayne County ARC/Key Industries.  Wayne County ARC/ Key Industries prepares the delicious food that is served at our six Lunch Club 60 Senior Centers.  Key Industries employs many dedicated staff who show up to work every morning, before most of us are even out of bed, to start preparing the many meals served to the seniors who attend our LC 60 Centers.

Chris is the Food Service Manger.  He oversees the kitchen and staff and ensures recipes are being followed and food safety is being practiced.  Chris attended college for Business Management and has a long history in restaurant and banquet services.  Prior to his employment at Wayne ARC, Chris was the Food Service Manager at a local nursing home for 20 years. In his spare time, Chris enjoys culinary arts, home remodeling, camping, and fishing. 

Diana is the Senior Food Service Aide. She assists with the preparation and packaging of the meals served at our LC 60 Centers. She helps to ensure that the correct amount of food is sent to each center so no senior goes hungry.   Diana has worked at Wayne ARC/Key Industries for 16 years and enjoys serving the people she works with and those who attend our LC 60 Centers.

Deb is a Food Service Aide/Contract Meals.  She is in charge of taking the meal orders when the LC 60 Managers call in the meal counts for the next day, assisting in the meal preparation, and packing of hot and cold foods for transport to the LC 60 Centers. She also helps to ensure that the correct amount of food is sent to each center so no senior goes hungry.  Deb enjoys providing great customer service and has worked for Wayne ARC/Key Industries for 5 years.

Steve is the Cook Trainer.  With the help of other staff, he prepares all of the food that is served at the six LC 60 Centers in Wayne County.  Steve hopes that the seniors enjoy the meals and he wishes them a Happy Spring!

Christine is a Food Service Aide/Deli.  She oversees the deli and assists with the food preparation for the LC 60 Center meals.  Prior to her employment at WARC/KI, Christine worked for Wegman’s in the meat department, and was a Deli Trainer for 19 years.  She also worked for her father’s meat company.

Necola is a Food Service Aide. She enjoys helping package the cold foods and anything else that is asked of her.  She just wants the seniors who attend our LC 60 centers to be happy.  When Necola is not working, she is busy raising her two little girls ages 2 years and 11 months.  She loves being a part of the Wayne ARC family.

James is a Food Service Aide.  He helps to prepare and package the meals sent to our LC 60 Centers.  When he’s not hard at work, he enjoys wood working in his spare time.
