As part of its ongoing effort to teach kids life skills, Urban Youth Impact hosts weekly CREATE cooking classes for their third to eighth grade students. The cooking classes show children how to cook tasty and creative meals, using food and other cooking staples they can find in their own kitchens.
To help provide Urban Youth Impact’s students with a year’s worth of cooking classes and the necessary supplies, GL Homes stepped in to help achieve the $3,000 goal. The partnership kicked off with a Thanksgiving meal, prepared by the young cooks and with assistance by GL Homes Director of Community Relations, Sarah Alsofrom, and Urban Youth Impact’s Marketing and Communications Manager, Anthony Savine, who helped make cornbread stuffing. The students used carrots, onions, and sausage to whip up this delicious Thanksgiving dinner staple.
Founded in 1997, West Palm Beach-based Urban Youth Impact is the only faith-based organization serving the most at-risk inner-city youth in Palm Beach County, primarily through an award-winning after school program.
