Mystic Valley Elder Services (MVES) is excited to announce two new cultural meal types as part of the Meals on Wheels Program. Russian and Haitian meals will be available starting December 6 and will be authentically prepared. Russian meals include signature dishes, such as chicken shashlik, lamb pilaf and beef stroganoff. Haitian meals include chicken sausage jambalaya, eggplant stew and Caribbean roast lamb.
The Meals on Wheels program delivers meals to people over 60 who are homebound and unable to prepare their own meals. The hot and cold menu is varied, and the meals are nutritionally balanced, cooked without added salt and consist of an entrée, two sides, dessert, milk, bread and margarine. Therapeutic meals available include soft, ground, pureed, low-lactose, renal and cardiac menus as well as carb-controlled meals for people with diabetes. Other cultural specific meals include Chinese, Caribbean, Asian/Vietnamese as well as vegetarian and Kosher meals.
