Description
Each Saturday we gather in our kitchen on the Drag to process about 150 pounds of food donated by Wheatsville Co-op from their composting program. It's a fun filled time with chopping, chatting and listening to music, all the while providing some of the healthiest and freshest food our clients will eat all week! We need about 6 people to help unload the truck, sort the produce, chop fruits and veggies, cook simple preparations (soups, casseroles, salads), package the finished food and load it into our refrigerators/ freezer, and help with cleanup. Clients eat this food throughout the week. This is a fun and relaxing time! This is a great small group activity, too!
