Tufts Medicine Care at Home Teaches Grievers to Navigate Mealtime Solo


Lawrence, Mass. – For those who are grieving, navigating new rhythms of grocery shopping, preparing meals and dining without a beloved partner can cause added daily distress.

Recognizing the deep connection between food and mourning, Tufts Medicine Care at Home has introduced a new session of “Cooking and Eating for One” to its lineup of free support groups offered via Zoom.

The series of three interactive workshops, which will take place on Mondays from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m., will teach straightforward, healthy recipes with minimal ingredients: Mushroom Pasta on Feb. 13; Chicken Piccata on March 13; and Broccoli Cheddar Soup on April 10. Participants are invited to register for one, two or all three sessions.

Care at Home’s support groups for adults, children, spouses/partners and individuals in the LGBTQ+ community who are grieving a death are free of charge and open to the public. To register and learn more, call 978-552-4510 or visit www.careathome.org/support-groups.
