CIP Amherst Students Cook for Kids

Cooks for KidsOn Friday, February 6, CIP Amherst students went to the Buffalo, New York Ronald McDonald House to take part in the Cooks for Kids volunteer activity. To prepare for the event, the students preplanned a menu and independently purchased the food with their own money during regular grocery shopping trips earlier in the week. Then on the night of service, they traveled to the local Ronald McDonald House and took over the kitchen, preparing a meal of spaghetti and tangy meatballs with garlic bread. The guests currently staying at the house, about fifteen people who are in Western New York while a family member receives medical treatment, enjoyed a hearty, comforting meal on a cold winter evening courtesy of the students of CIP Amherst. In turn, the students took part in a community service event that was fun and gratifying, by not only thinking about others who may be experiencing a trying time, but stepping up to lend some support. Good job!
