The Salvation Army -Older Alaskans Program

     The Salvation Army Older Alaskans Program provides home-delivered meals, group meal sites, and assisted transportation to seniors and people with disabilities in need in the Anchorage area. For some Anchorage seniors, home-delivered meals are a lifeline to the outside world. The daily delivery of hot meals, with frozen meals for the weekends and holidays, helps to give seniors the opportunity to continue living independently.


Chef Jens Nannestad

      Jens was born and raised in Sweden and studied engineering before entering the culinary field. He studied in Europe and graduated with honors in 1985 from the California Culinary Academy in San Francisco. Upon moving to Alaska, Chef Jens worked at The Crow’s Nest. In late 1995, he opened Southside Bistro, one of the most popular restaurants in Anchorage with a menu based on the philosophy of “Fresh Fun Food.”
