I visited two of BronxWorks' sites this week: the Living Room, their 24-hour drop in center, and Safe Haven their homeless shelter for men. I'm thrilled to share that that they have met all of their original three goals!
Their goals were to work with their vendor to find prepared items with less salt, to add fresh broccoli to their menu and to improve their culinary skills- particularly with knives since they'll be preparing more fresh vegetables.
After our time working in the kitchen we went to the community garden to collect fresh herbs. The cooks were very excited to make salad dressing with hyper local ingredients.
The staff has been working incredibly hard to serve more fresh and healthier food to their clients. They're planning on attending our future workshops to continue their work. Now that they've met their goals, they're going to move forward with new goals. Our mantra here is in order to make change do small, achievable actions.
