What: Buy, prepare, and bring lunch for youth in our summer programs.
- DYVAS (Develop Your Voice and Speak) Employment Program hosted at the PV office for 13 girls ages 14-18 plus 2 staff.
- Girls Rising middle school program hosted at Casa Latina for 15 girls (ages 12-14) plus 2 staff
Why: Staff have limited time and capacity to buy and prepare food, Powerful Voices and Casa Latina kitchen's are limited on appliances and space, and youth love to eat healthy food prepared by the wider community. Good food is love!
What types of food: Think healthy and easy to eat/prepare. For example: sandwich making station, fruit, veggies, chips and salsa, pasta salad, enchiladas, chicken and rice, pizza, etc. For any hot dishes, PV only has a small microwave and toaster oven and we are not sure yet about Casa Latina's kitchen so we don't have the capacity to heat up large dishes.
