This week at Harvest Kitchen in our training program, service was our goal! First, our afternoon group of 16- to 19-year-olds volunteered at Agnes Little Elementary School‘s Homework Diner — where an impromptu basketball game broke out after serving dinner! Two elementary school students almost stole the game! After such a successful experience, the trainees also volunteered their time at City Meal soup kitchen, where they met a variety of people and encouraged their peers to value community service.
Meanwhile, our morning group has finally finished their financial literacy course, courtesy of Foster Forward. They are eager to open bank accounts and have started planning new investments. Many already have visions of cars racing through their thoughts, especially those with newly gained permits.
Back at the kitchen, apples continue to occupy us as we learn about the foods of the world! Apple fritters, Apple Crisp, even Turkey apple pie! That won’t stop the crew from making what they love though! Chocolate Souffle coming right up… with a side of roasted caramel apples.
And of course, we are making loads of Apple Chips — customer favorites at both our Local Foods Café weekdays 8am-3pm, and at the Farm Fresh Winter Market on Saturdays 9am-1pm!
