Thanks to a grant from Supervisor London Breed, through the Department of Children, Youth and Families, CommunityGrows is able to offer six nights of cooking from 5:30-7:30 PM through August. The dates are June 11th and 25th, July 9th and 23rd, and August 6th and 20th. CommunityGrows is doing these classes in partnership with the Buchanan Youth Center at Plaza East, under the leadership of Martha Hollins, Program Coordinator and with the assistance of Monica Bhagwan from Leah’s Pantry.6.11.15-PlazaEastCookin_IMG_13716.11.15-PlazaEastCookin_IMG_1376
On Thursday June 11th we were honored to Shannon Monique from GreenStreets join our CommunityGrows crew to help lead the class, and assist Adrian Almquist. We had over 20 youth and five adults helping to prepare minestrone soup, which we had with fresh baked bread from the oven. It was a delicious dinner and great success for our first time at Plaza East. Thank you everyone for your support and participation! 6.11.15-PlazaEastCookin_IMG_1389
