Passages’ Culinary Arts Program (CAP) cooked lunch for 300 homeless veterans on Thursday during Stand Down, courtesy of Volunteers of America.
Stand Down is an event hosted by the Department of Veterans Affairs that supplies military surplus items to local vets in need. Several Alternatives, Inc. staff are volunteering to serve the meal that the CAP students will be preparing. The event was on Thursday, October 20, 2016 at the Shrine Auditorium.
During menu planning process, some of our CAP students who have experienced homelessness in the past gave the CAP instructor a poignant lesson in some of the relevant concerns and obstacles the homeless population faces when eating outside of the insecurity of knowing when the next meal will come – including concerns about dental health, the effects of rich food along with the the possibility of compromised immune systems and food safety.
Since its inception in the spring of 2009, CAP has provided culinary training to 58 participants.
