Spring has Sprung!

Our last frost date behind us (and two more bonus frost warnings last week!) means that we finally get to plant our seedlings in the gardens. We’ve been nurturing them in our greenhouse waiting for the warm weather and now it’s time to really get our hands dirty. This week we’re excited to take our tiny plants out into the sun and give them a chance to really grow. Mitch is happy that the weather is nice and hopes that everything can be planted before the rain in a few days.  

Growing our own vegetables really helps to connect to the food we eat. However, this requires your help. Every year we need some new gardening supplies and we need to replace broken equipment. With your donation we can make sure that our gardening program continues to succeed for another growing season.

What's for lunch?

What’s new at CSS?

The LunchBox!

As part of our teaching healthy living skills, we are now offering healthy alternatives for lunchtime purchases. Every weekday, individuals spend the morning preparing foods, learning about why food choices are healthy. They are also building upon their cooking skills and mastering new techniques.

The meals are prepackaged and menus will vary daily and will be a combination of soup, salad and sandwiches. Even the honey mustard is made from scratch and it’s even more fun to learn how to make homemade tomato soup than it is to eat it!

The LunchBox opened for business on Monday, January 26th and everyone is excited to see this new endeavor take off!

Stay tuned for more information as we see this new project develop.

Salad Class has been expanding!

Thanks to support from donors like you, we’ve been able to expand our Salad Class since we first wrote about it in January. With new classes we’ve been able to reach out to more individuals and have seen some remarkable changes in eating habits both in and out of the classrooms! Yesterday, for the first time, one participant happily made himself a salad AND ate it! Six months ago he wouldn’t even stay in the kitchen for the duration of the class and now we're not only participating, but enjoying it too!

In addition to the number of classes, we’ve been able to add even more salad choices and have created some one on one classes for those that need it the individualized attention. We’ve been able to buy more specialized tools for those that have difficulty with the dexterity needed to chop their own vegetables. And most importantly, we’ve been able to give everyone the time and encouragement they need.

We will continue our program and reach out as we can afford to do so. Donations make this initiative possible. Thank you so much for helping us change lifestyles one carrot at a time!
