Roslyn Cooking Club Cooks and Donates Meals for “Aid for Friends”
This week the Roslyn second and third grade Cooking Club used their cooking skills to give back to the community by making and donating four pans of macaroni and cheese for meals for “Aid for Friends.” Aid for Friends helps prepare and package an average of 300 meals every month to serve needy, isolated shut-ins, primarily the frail elderly in the greater Philadelphia area. The meals are free with the goal to help home-bound elderly folks maintain their independence by supporting them in their homes for as long as possible and to enhance their quality of life.
The Cooking Club’s mission is the help second and third grade students at Roslyn gain their own independence in the kitchen by teaching them about food safety, preparation, and cooperation. They were very excited to use their new skills to feed those in need!
