“ Since visiting the community kitchen on Friday nights I really look forward to coming here. We talk about the student’s project and I contribute my time. I feel my ideas are important and welcomed. They treat me like its me …and my opinions matter. I loved putting my sewing skills to use helping to make the canopy part. When it’s ready to go up I’ll be so proud to know that I was involved in it”

“What a blast. I have a great time on Fridays and look forward to the progress made by the students each week. They have really listened to the residents who will be using this mobile kitchen in the future. I have also enjoyed all the different kinds of interactions between people you would never see anywhere else. It’s been a real eye opener – highly recommended and entertaining… have enjoyed every minute of it. Looking forward to many more of these special moments this summer…”

“I had no idea this happened on Friday nights in my area. I had feelings of being so isolated over the winter months that it was depressing. I felt not much happened around here. Now that’s different since coming to this Kitchen. I feel like I belong, everyone does, to the same group. We worked together with the students from the University and we got to see how they worked on a project. Maybe they learned a little from us too.”
