Can I opt out of meals?
No, the meals are all part of the package. We find that residents actually end up saving both time and money by not needing to worry about cooking for themselves. Meals together also help contribute to the family atmosphere Ashwell strives to foster.
What if I have class or other activities during dinner time?
Monday through Friday we offer a limited number of late dinners. By adding your name to the list, the kitchen staff will plate you that night’s dinner and leave it in the fridge for your return.
