SOME OF OUR FAVORITE LOCAL STORIES.
Feeding hope: Cecelia’s story
But Cecelia’s budget looks a lot different during the COVID-19 pandemic. Her husband’s lawn care and handyman business used to support them. Now, they’re struggling to pay all the bills.
“It’ll help a lot, especially the oranges because I’m supposed to get one a day.”
Cecelia misses a lot about life before the pandemic, but she’s grateful for the ways the community has come together to support one another. “I just appreciate everything everyone is doing for everybody,” she said, pointing to the Mobile Market. “I just pray that it’s over soon.”
Kids Summer Cooking Classes – Jun 2
So many life skills are learned in the kitchen — counting, following directions, teamwork, science, budgeting both time and money, problem-solving, creativity, and more! This is why Second Harvest is passionate about providing kids with the opportunity to build confidence in the kitchen. We’re excited to host two great kids cooking camps this summer in The Kitchen at Second Harvest.
