Dedham Savings Community Foundation Supports Charles River Center
The Dedham Savings Community Foundation has donated to Charles River Center (CRC). The grant funds will support a pilot nutritional consultation and education program at five of CRC’s residential homes. The funds will allow CRC to provide weekly in-person training sessions on meal planning and safety for residents and staff, including cooking classes in partnership with Anderson Nutrition Services and Merrimack College’s Graduate Nutrition Program.
