Empty Lot Committee

October Kitchen Help

We are so fortunate to have a wonderful chef that makes delicious and healthy meals for our children. Our food quality and variety far surpasses any other school lunches around, but Chef Lita cannot do it alone. She needs help with the clean-up every day so that she can continue to provide our school with the lunches we've come to expect. Please continue to support our kitchen.
