The Institute for Integrative aging is committed to creating events that will enhance social connectivity and build a  stronger sense of community—addressing the needs of Maine’s growing population of older adults.

Each Wednesday this summer, older adults of the local community are invited to take part in a farm-to-table lunch experience in the rustically beautiful setting of our historic Normandy-style Stone Barn on Sebago Lake. Each week, Chef Mary Paine will craft a different lunch menu focused on local meats, sustainable seafood, and seasonal produce. Lunches will consist of three courses: a salad or appetizer, main entrée, and dessert. Family-style seating on long tables will allow for socializing under soaring turn-of-the-century timbers. We welcome you to enjoy this community-building dining experience and celebration of sustainability brought to you by the Institute for Integrative Aging.
