Taste of Spring a success for Great Bay Services
DOVER – Food brings people together. At a time when we were so far apart, Great Bay Services continued to connect its members through cooking. Supporting more than 200 adults with developmental and intellectual disabilities, the nonprofit offered remote and in-person programming throughout the pandemic, including online cooking classes. When they were unable to hold their usual in-person gala fundraiser, they looked inward to their clients for inspiration.
Chef Justin Walker of Walkers Maine joined an exclusive group of Great Bay Services supporters online for a class. Enriching lives through Tastes of Spring, this online event supported Great Bay’s community inclusion, employment, independent living and case management programs. Echoing the theme of together but far apart, Walker shared recipes for chicken and paella that he adapted from a friend in Peru. Located in York, ME, Walkers Maine is open for dinner, Wednesday through Sunday.
Great Bay Services has operated continuously for more than 65 years, serving adults with disabilities and their families in New Hampshire and Maine.
Partners Bank was the underwriting sponsor of Tastes of Spring. Kennebunk Savings, DF Richard, Fred C Church Insurance and Leone, McDonnell & Roberts, Professional Association sponsored the event.
Great Bay Services operates community-based programs out of Sanford, ME and Dover, NH. For more information on their services, please contact 207-850-1053 or 603-842-5344.
