Fighting Poverty with Passion

Field Report: Southern Food and Beverage Museum

I started by leading a Kids Pasta Workshop where I taught kids how to make pasta from scratch. We covered our hands in flour and made a nice mini-meal where we learned about how herbs are used to flavor dishes. The summer camp is about to start, so I’ll be doing more of this kind of cooking with kids and I’m excited about it.


I took a quick lunch break and then headed over to the building that will be the SoFAB Culinary Library (1609 Oretha Castle Haley Blvd.) We got a grant from ServeNola to build 2 raised garden beds. We had a great group of volunteers and were able to clear tons of weeds and complete the first step of creating our garden. Next we’ll be building a compost system!
