Feeding South Florida® – the leading hunger-relief organization in South Florida – is hosting a series of cooking classes in its one-of-a-kind Community Kitchen at its Palm Beach County warehouse in Boynton Beach this September during Hunger Action Month®.
During each class, participants will have the opportunity to gain hands-on culinary experience with Feeding South Florida’s Director of Culinary Services Susan Taves and take their creations home to enjoy. Prior culinary experience is not required.
Hunger Action Month takes place throughout September and is designed to raise awareness about the issue of hunger in South Florida and inspire others to take action toward ending it. Throughout the month, Feeding South Florida will offer a range of events and activities to encourage South Florida residents to “GO ORANGE” and engage in various hunger-relief efforts. Activities can be found on feedingsouthflorida.org/events for Hunger Action Month.
A portion of the proceeds support Feeding South Florida’s mission to end hunger in South Florida by providing immediate access to nutritious food, leading hunger and poverty advocacy efforts and transforming lives through innovative programming and education.
In 2020, Feeding South Florida unveiled its state-of-the-art, 5,000-square-foot community kitchen. Although the kitchen is located in Palm Beach County, it provides 85,000 meals to people in the four counties that Feeding South Florida serves (Palm Beach, Broward, Miami-Dade and Monroe Counties). The multi-purpose community kitchen serves as a meal production site, culinary training program, social enterprise catering, incubator space for graduates of the program, and healthy cooking classes. The kitchen advances Feeding South Florida’s mission of ending hunger in South Florida by serving up to 20,200 meals per day for children’s after-school and summer programs, meals for older adults and medically tailored meals. The kitchen also provides critical meals during disaster response.
Feeding South Florida’s September cooking classes include:
French Patisserie | Tuesday, Sept. 26, 6 – 8 p.m.
Feeding South Florida invites the community to learn how to make Pate a Choux, the delicious pastry used for cream puffs and eclairs. Participants will make crème pâtissier (pastry cream) and fill their own pastry puffs while learning the history of this versatile pastry, and ways to use if for savory dishes.
