When reader Diane Keegan organized a Food Art Day during National Assisted Living Week (which is usually in mid September), she demonstrated that it’s just as much fun to make people smile as it is to create a culinary masterpiece. Food art is not necessarily about making the prettiest, perfect designs. Sometimes it’s just about having fun and sharing it with others.
Diane came up with the idea to have a Food Art Day during National Assisted Living Week at the assisted living center where she works. She asked the employees to bring in any type of food art and inspired them by showing them photos with ideas. Maybe you’ll get an idea here that you can put to use.
Well, our Food Art day came and went and I felt it was a huge success. The employees got involved and the residents enjoyed looking at our creations. ” Diane

As you look at these, remember that these are just for fun having been done by employees of the assisted living center who were asked to bring something to brighten the day of the residents.
Diane made the Simpsons meat and cheese platter for Food Art Day during National Assisted Living Week.
The Simpson’s was bread on the bottom, with lettuce along the edges, and cheese and lunch meat, and cereal for color. They eyes were radishes. Saw a picture on the internet and since our Safety Mascot is Homer Simpson, I decided to do something fun.” Diane
Diane arranged the following basket of gourds with the Art for the Ages carved in the white pumpkin.

One last photo to share and this is what Diane has to say about it:
My daughter-in-law made these for our grandson’s pre school class tomorrow. She has always been intrigued by what I have done. Mini campfires. She knew I would be proud of her. And I am.”
A big thank you to Diane for sharing the photos with us of the Food Art Day during National Assisted Living Week!
