"Food, What?!" Photo of the Month


The Photo-of-the-Month is our monthly snapshot to share with friends and family. If you dig it, you'll see it again next month. Thanks for viewing...

Doron, Abby, Alex and the FoodWhat Crew

FoodWhat now has an exciting new FoodWhat Alumni Association!

BIG KICKOFF EVENT!  Last Friday night, 25 FoodWhat Alumni, spanning all 6 years of our program, came together to meet each other, reminisce about the good ol' days in FoodWhat, and to hoot and holler for the Warriors (Santa Cruz' new NBA D-league team).

FoodWhat Associate Director, Alex, and two youth from 2012 created this new program of FoodWhat to keep everyone connected, to help track the effects of their time at FW, and to be able to offer ongoing personal, career, and college support. It was a fantastic first event and a super fun way to catch up!

We heard about Brighton's ('08) job at Bantam Restaurant, and Jacques ('12) love of working at The Penny Ice Creamery. Sam ('10) told us he was taking a welding class at Cabrillo, and Tyrell ('09) is moving towards graduation there as well. Max ('11) reminded us that he and Vicky ('12) are working on a plan to earn the Brower Youth Award.    
Arek ('07) showed full FoodWhat pride (in response to a text that I sent out to wear their FoodWhat t-shirt, not remembering that we didn't have shirts our first year in 2007) by showing up in a white t-shirt with FOODWHAT written large in black permanent marker across the front!
Six years of youth mingled and created new community, and we got the chance to do personal and professional check-ins with each one. Great night...

(Thanks to Danny Keith from Grind Out Hunger for donating the 30 tickets.)
