May 2019 Newsletter

Welcome to (hopefully) warmer weather, Spring and May

As you may recall, the Cape Cod Culinary Incubator was the recipient of a state grant earlier this year to provide cooking classes to at-risk youth in the Town of Barnstable. With the help of many individuals and departments in the town, we have begun a pilot program and have 10 kids that have started classes. We have enlisted the services of Chef Jeni Wheeler from the Faith Church to hold these classes. To date we have brought the class into the commercial kitchen at the Faith Church and this past week into the kitchen at the fire station in Hyannis. KAM Appliances has invited us to use one of their kitchens for an upcoming class and they will be heading to Star Market for a shopping trip. It is fun to watch them get excited about some of the food options and check out all the equipment. This first class will conclude in mid-June when they cook a full meal for their families.

Board President

Food Truck Friday a hit at KAM!

Our ‘Food Truck Friday’ event was held earlier in May at KAM Appliance in Hyannis.  Laura Gaito drove her food truck What The Truck over and donated some tasty food for all.

Big thanks also go to Barnstable Brewing and Truro Vineyards for supporting our fund raising activities with their donations. And, of course, we couldn't have done it without the support of KAM Appliances

Interested in Grilling?

Our next cooking class “Get your Grill On!”  will be on Wednesday June 12th; 2-4 PM.
