The Southborough Senior Center is making good use of their new kitchen. They’ve lined up five more free cooking demos for March and April.

Space is limited for each, so sign up quickly at the desk or by calling 508-229‐4453.

Resident seniors can take advantage of the sessions to learn new recipes, get nutrition or safety tips, and sample some great food.

Two of the demos feature special guests:
