Summer 2014 Final Dinner!

Our final dinner was a huge hit! 
All of our friends, family, and folks who supported us throughout the summer gathered at the FoodWhat farm to celebrate the summer with us, ending the program on a perfect note. 

We kicked the night off with a warm welcome to our guests and giving huge props to the FoodWhat crew for completing the summer program. Celebrating such amazing accomplishments meant an equally amazing meal, made from ingredients mostly grown by the FoodWhat crew themselves. All of our hard work brought veggie lasagna, spicy string beans, and bountiful salad to the table.

With full bellies, we heard some personal testimonies from our team. We heard stories of new inspiration from attending the RIC Conference (Rooted in Community) in New Mexico, healthier lifestyles, and improved work ethic. We celebrated our summer growth with warm berry crumble for dessert.

Next up, we gave huge thanks to those who supported us throughout the program. Huge shout outs went to the FoodWhat Staff, Junior staff, and all of our supporters from the extended community joining us that night.

Then it was our turn to look back on the work we did throughout the summer with a rad slideshow to give our friends and family a peak into the incredible work we did over the summer. Abby and Roanna handed out cookbooks with all of our photos from the year to look back on our experiences and keep cooking FoodWhat style at home. Leo, Abby, Roanna, and Doron gave props to each individual on the crew for goals they had accomplished and the personal strengths they brought to the team as a whole. With a last congratulations, Roanna presented everyone with their fall job to continue working as part of the FoodWhat team with a more specialized position come September.

Congratulations to the 2014 Summer Crew!
