Y Achievers Youth Cooking Program -
In January we completed the youth cooking class with the Y Achievers program. On the final night, the class under the direction of Chef Jeni Wheeler spent the better part of the afternoon working in the Faith Family Kitchen preparing dinner to feed their friends & family. They then served dinner for everyone. At the end of the evening, each of the students received a certificate for the course and their own apron. Some will use their new skills to help get a job in the summer or part time during school. All of them will now have some new life skills to take home.
