Hello everybody! I wanted fill you in about the job I got at Salvation Army and Boys and Girls Club Kid’s Cafe! I am now the Program Cook under the supervision of the Unit Director. Some of my job duties include ordering, purchasing, preparing and serving meals. Everything we do in the kitchen is in compliance with the USDA’s Child and Adult Care Food Program. I am responsible for accurately completing daily attendance rosters, meal count sheets and Menu as Served forms and returning them to the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma’s Kid’s Cafe Program Coordinator. I also maintain a clean kitchen facility, equipment, appliances and maintain inventory of food and supplies. It is impariative that I manage all of these duties
in and organized and timely manner. I plan menus, purchase food for meals and snacks reimbursable through the USDA’s CACFP, and I maintain supplies necessary for the preparation and serving of nutritional meals for at-risk children.
Though the responsibility is great, the rewards are even greater! Not only do I get to work in my field of passion, culinary arts, I also get to teach children about healthy eating and preparing meals. This is a total win-win situation. I enjoy working with kids, from all walks of life in all ages. Teaching them how to cook is an essential
I am truly blessed with this new opportunity to be able to feed children that might not otherwise have a hot meal at night. I am also the proud recipient of many smiles and cheers from the kids everyday I walk through the doors. They are all so kind and giving. It’s only right for me to give back myself to help them achieve great things.
MCA students have been extremely giving this holiday season. On Thursday December 16th, Mrs. Graham and Ms. Rodgers’ students stuffed stockings for the Red Cross while Mr. and Mrs. Britt took students to the Salvation Army to assist the needy.
The advisory students of Graham and Rodgers stuffed 200 stockings filled with candy, toys, school supplies, and hygiene products for the Red Cross to pass out to less fortunate children. During the previous week, students, teachers, and Metro Tech staff collected items to place in the stockings. The students enjoyed particpating in this event. Ryan Blair said, “I enjoyed the project and I hope I made a child’s Christmas a little brighter this year.”
On December 16th, SWAGG volunteered at the Salvation Army Toys for Tots city wide distribution. (SWAGG = Students With Oustounding Gear and Goals) Thousands of families benefit from this annual event. Members of SWAGG volunteered from 10:15am until 1:30pm. The ladies were inside runners. They were responsible for loading the gifts into baskets and bringing them to the front. The men took the women’s baskets and loaded them with food, then transported the boxes of food, and the bags of toys to the families vehicles where they were loaded into the vehicles as well. Thank you Mr. and Mrs. Britt and our students for all you do!!!
