Sorry I somehow missed this string... but food service social enterprise has GREAT opportunities for 55+, provided they can lift 50 pounds and be on their feet for long periods of time. We see LOTS of successful seniors completing foodservice training and getting solid, stable employment.
Food Service is great because there's lots of part-time work available, in addition to full time opportunities.
