Hello! Looking forward to meeting everyone! My spouse and I live alone in a desert. I work in town, about a half hour away, three days a week, cooking a fresh meal for our city community of houseless. Our pets are gone but we love all animals, practice veganism the past handful of years and on and off prior, but do have to deal with animal products for work. This morning the donation I had to cook was chicken gizzards and stuff, cook, freeze, label, then I plan to use it in Dirty Rice. I like learning everything I can about food, how to get the most nutrients out, love learning from others how to do things, and I think I would like teaching it on the side for sure.
When running a Kitchen off donated items that may be different from week to week, it's good to be flexible and be able to ask for help. There are also outside factors that may be in play as well, such as volunteers, training, storage, equipment, etc. Come to us with any questions and ideas and we will answer and be appreciative, and help if help is needed.
