What’s cooking at the Community Table?!

April 9, 2021

Damion Howard – Director of Community Table: The oven is hot, food is growing, and bellies are full at the Boys & Girls Club! The Club has been enjoying lots of fun and interactive activities with the Community Table. To kick off Spring, our Members and community partner volunteers from Target (thank you Target!) had a blast planting seeds for our raised bed vegetable gardens. We can’t wait to include homegrown fresh food in our Member meals! During Spring Break, we gave Club Members an opportunity to cook and eat campfire food at Crossroads at Big Creek. After a fun morning of building survival shelters in the woods, the kids joined in on cooking and eating hot dogs and pizza pudgy pies. Lastly, in an effort to better support our community, we started a Culinary Youth Apprenticeship Program in collaboration with the Door County Economic Development Corporation. Through the program, Youth Apprentices will learn a variety of culinary skills while preparing food for our Members. We are currently accepting applications and are excited to get high schoolers in the kitchen!
