Community Project

Ashley has lined up a great opportunity to use our nutrition skills in the community. An organizational meeting will be held Monday, March 23 at 10:00 am in Campbell Hall.

The schedule for the project:

Monday, April 27th - Basic nutrition introduction / food tasting demo (15 teens)

Wednesday, April 29th - Cooking healthy snacks, hands on with the kids (15 teens)

Tuesday, May 12th - Grocery store trip with kids / recipe planning (15 teens)

Thursday, May 14th - Cook grocery items for healthy meal for 50 teens (15 teens, feed 50)

We need to raise a bit of money to fund this. Godman can provide $200 for the final cooking night but if we could raise another $100ish for the first cooking and food tasting, it would be great. We will know more after our planning meeting, but keep in mind some fund raising ideas.
