Preparing home-cooked food is a ritual that combines curiosity and anticipation, diligence and mastering new skills. A ritual that in our centers is very important for both the teams of social workers and for the young people in our care, who are never indifferent to the menu, the products and the way the meals are served at home.
For the second year in a row, we set a goal to raise funds for the youth’s favorite culinary workshops, part of our Occupational therapy program. In these workshops, our young adults have the opportunity to experiment with new recipes, learn new techniques and, last but not least, have a delicious meal which they have cooked themselves. The varied textures and flavors have a stimulating effect on the senses and working with dough calms and improves motor skills. There is great excitement waiting for the fresh bread to come out of the oven and decorating the table brings smiles and pride. We teach the youths to create their own menus, follow recipes and choose the appropriate utensils for different dishes.
We need 5,000 BGN to provide the upcoming 12 culinary workshops. The Cook With Me campaign will be raising funds during the months of April and May so that the young people can build on their skills in the kitchen again this year.
Support the campaign and let’s work together to provide the next culinary adventure for our young people.
