More engaged and active baby boomers are eager to have a hands-on experience in customizing their diets. That’s one of the trends picked up by Brandy Palmero — manager of a program that delivers meals to seniors in Hall County — after attending the annual Meals on Wheels convention held recently in Denver. Palmero is eager to put into practice some of the ideas she brought back from the three-day event that drew almost 600 coordinators of the Meals on Wheels programs from coast to coast.
