The chefs' tall white toques are now adorned with the FLIK Lifestyles logo at Lutheran Crossings Enhanced Living at Moorestown. But what does it mean?

Lutheran Crossings is dishing out the same great culinary delights to its assisted living and skilled nursing residents, but with a fresh perspective from FLIK Lifestyles, an operating company of Compass Group North America.

The quality of food and variety of offerings has not changed, as all of Compass Group's companies operate with the highest of standards. Lutheran Crossings' dining services team continues to use wholesome, fresh ingredients, vital to health, and harvested in a socially responsible way for the well-being of its senior residents. But what you may see is an embedded culture of extraordinary hospitality and a 'spirit to serve,' creating the most compassionate level of dining services.
