I wouldn't hold out much hope, particularly in a smaller town, but in this age of privatization, some high-end continuum-of-care homes are hiring serious chefs. There is a very small possibility that you could be surprised. (But I wouldn't count on it. ;) )

Nope, Robin, NOPE. Notice that Subway is another vendor. Some listed will indeed show well, for instance I do buy our coffee from that coffee roaster, they don't even have a shop--I drive to their barn and love finding my way thru the ducks and the chickens, great people. But really, if Subway and a Nursing Home are participating Bites--ouch.

Jeff, thanks for the link. I recognize some of the people, in fact the guy in the 6th pic down on the left lived next door to us for awhile. He's a Realtor and in demand as an MC for anything that puts him in the public eye.
