Culinary Crew is back in the kitchen at Wayside! Every Tuesday through the Fall, the group of enthusiastic teens gathers to prepare meals for elderly residents in our community. Culinary Crew is a program offered by Cultivating Community for high school youth who have a particular interest in cooking, learning about food, building leadership skills and meeting new people. They use learned skills to prepare nutritious and delicious meals in the Wayside kitchen every Tuesday and personally deliver the meals to elderly residents at their homes in the East Bayside neighborhood. When part of the program these young people are paid interns, the responsibility of which builds more than just kitchen skills.
