Each Tuesday and Friday, RHR school comes alive with the sights and smells of delicious food.
The school participates in Cooking Matters, a six-week program in nutrition and food preparation run in cooperation with @foodlinkny
. Thirty RHR students are learning about the nutritional value of different foods as they pick up new recipes and techniques. Each week they leave class with ingredients to turn their latest lesson into a home-cooked meal. At the end of the six weeks, they receive a voucher for groceries, an apron and a certificate. The voluntary program also provides students opportunities to improve their English as they listen, question and cooperate.
Chef Heidi Riegel of Foodlink taught students how to make fruit pizza this week, while Jamie Lam explained the benefits of various grains. Students had the option of making their toppings from Ricotta cheese with honey and lemon zest or mashed bananas. 📸: @lindeeohlman #WithRefugees #nobannowall #letthemin #lovearmy #huffpostgram #whatamericalookslike #ROCwelcomesall #standforrights2017 #foodgram
