IMG_0236

Mercy Endeavors’ seniors were able to put their juicing to the test during a recent partnership with AARP. The seniors used both healthy ingredients, new juicers and hard work to blend juices for distribution at a recent AARP event. Thank you to AARP for including our seniors as well as a grant from the Brown Foundation to provide the state of the art juicers and making this unique and enjoyable opportunity available to participants. The Brown Foundation grant has allowed Mercy Endeavors’ seniors to embrace healthy living and healthy eating by learning to make and enjoy delicious and nutritious food for themselves.
