Preparing for Summer

Wishing you all a Happy Summer from HomeFront Family Campus!  Along with our fellow grantees, we have continued to adapt to a constantly changing world.  Although we have not yet been able to restart our culinary program, we have found some creative ways to continue our focus on health and nutrition.  Residents at HomeFront’s Family Campus recently participated in HomeFront’s Virtual Run/Walk – the event was such a success that we are initiating a weekly walking club.  Our amazing teaching kitchen volunteers have been with us throughout all of this – creating their own Run/Walk team, helping us as we hone our culinary program and creating “food bag recipes” to distribute to the increased number of visitors to our food pantry.  We’ve tried to have some culinary fun outdoors, a juicing class being the most successful of these endeavors.  This summer at the family campus will look quite different from last year – mostly because our little ones will not be leaving for camp each morning.  We plan to have lots of outdoor fun for the kids as well as more outdoor culinary adventures for our families. Stay safe and enjoy these summer days!
