Members of the Orchard House Care Home in Wisbech appeared at the town’s Tesco store last week as part of an organised visit.
The visit, planned by the community champion from the store, Heidi Mote, took place on March 27.
Residents participated in various food activities, including making bread and tasting different fruits, cheeses and hams.
At the end of their trip, they were able to take back freshly-made hot cross buns to the home to show fellow residents what they were missing out on.
Speaking on the event, Mote said: “The residents who came had a wonderful time.”
