Walser volunteers will be spending Wednesday at Perspectives cooking in their Kids Cafe.
Kids Cafe is a nutrition and self-esteem program for high risk and homeless youth living in St. Louis Park. The program operates 5 days a week and serves over 65 elementary aged children each day. The program provides mentoring and education around nutrition as well as teaching the children key team building, leadership and hygiene skills.
The Kids Cafe program serves children a well-balanced, home-styled evening meal. The program seeks to mentor basic socialization skills, responsibility, contribution, sharing, positive companionship, and healthy decision-making. A uniqueness to the program is that children work together to prepare the meal, set the table and then help clean up.
We will be serving ground turkey sandwiches, sloppy style, complete with Grandpa Paul's Sauce, romaine salad with apples and craisins and pumpkin spice bars made with apple sauce instead of oil.
