"I have three daughters that are nurses who keep me informed of nutrition trends," says Marilyn Sullivan, a participant at the Osage congregate meal site. "I like to try new things, which is why I like Fresh Conversations!"
Mike started coming to the meal site in Albia a few years ago. "I can't say enough good things about Fresh Conversations." He enjoys the camaraderie and not having to worry about getting a good meal.
