New Kitchen helps Culinary & Life Skills

October 20, 2009 at 3:04 pm Leave a comment

We wanted to share these pictures with you as in August, one of our programs Casita Del Valle, moved to a new home and are lucky enough to have multiple kitchens, one of which is used to offer the children in the shelter cooking classes.

The children follow a 6 week curriculum that teaches them everything from hygiene in food preparation, nutrition, and, of course, the preparation of different meals. The final project for the class will be for them to prepare a big meal for the clients and staff.  They love using the kitchen, and we’re happy that we are able to spark a new interest and perhaps passion with food, that may lead to bigger and better things in life.

Here’s a few of pictures with the kids hard at work, and enjoying themselves learning new skills in the kitchen. Thanks for looking!
