Lovin’ Spoonfuls Holds Cooking Demo at ABCD Neighborhood Center

The ABCD North End/West End Neighborhood Service Center (NE/WE NSC) was pleased to have its partner Lovin’ Spoonfuls conduct a nutrition/healthful cooking workshop to the seniors.

Lovin’ Spoonfuls is dedicated to facilitating the rescue and distribution of healthy, fresh food that would otherwise be discarded. They deliver this food weekly in trucks to community organizations like the NE/WE NSC, which not only enables the center to stretch it food budget for the pantry and weekly congregate meals, but also to serve Lovin’ Spoonfuls’ larger mission of addressing the health, environmental, and economic impact that food waste has on communities.

Catherine Pedtke, Education Coordinator, came to wow the seniors and staff with her impressive cooking skills. She set up a food demonstration station and cooked a mouthwatering meal of lentil and turkey stew, all with vegetables spices that are easy on the waistline and low in sodium! Hot quick and easy poached apples with cinnamon rounded out the meal.
