What's Cooking at FaithWorks?

January, 2021. Food security is always a major issue with vulnerable populations. Almost every asylum-seeking family we work with requested food boxes this month. Our program supports them by picking up food for these working families at a Food Pantry. We are also rolling out a new nutritional program. Here’s how it works: Every three weeks, we are including a recipe in Spanish and in English for a healthy meal that uses the food in the boxes. The recipe is developed by a volunteer nutritionist on our team. Families send a picture of themselves and the finished product and receive a prize! It’s fun, it’s a great learning opportunity, it builds community and people are fed in more ways than one. Jessica intends to expand this program to include nutritional literacy, the non-metric language of cooking in American English, and cultural diversity in the recipes. This is truly a delicious program!
