On December 23, 2020 Francesco Lulaj owner of Killingworth’s La Foresta Restaurant, along with his family and friends delivered two meals to each home in Killingworth’s Beechwood senior community as his gift to the senior citizens in our town. The seniors received a pasta and meatball dinner, and a turkey dinner with stuffing. This is the third time since the pandemic began that Francesco has done this. On each occasion he and his crew delivered over 600 meals.
Doing this for the seniors of the Beechwood community is a labor of love for Francesco and his way of giving back to Killingworth. He is especially concerned about our seniors during the holiday season and wanted to do something special for them because he felt that many of them would not be able to be with their families to celebrate this year. This is even more important to him at this time as his own parents and family will be separated due to the virus.

An additional 50 meals were donated to the Shoreline Soup Kitchen Christmas Eve Lunch at the Congregational Church in Deep River.
