Last night I had the wonderful opportunity to volunteer as a facilitator at the first Family Table Cooking Club, hosted by West CAP and the St. Croix Falls Buy Local Initiative. The focus of the event was helping low-income families in the area learn how to utilize more fresh ingredients and whole grains into their diets, as well as discussing the benefits of shopping locally and purchasing locally produced goods. Katelin, one of the VISTA volunteers with the Buy Local Initiative, was the primary organizer of the event. Her and I had been working the past several weeks to organize a menu, purchase food, advertise, and secure a location to host the event, among many other things.
