FamilyWorks’ After School Tutoring Program’s Family Dinner

FamilyWorks would like to give a big thank you to our guest chef, Rachel Duboff of Thyme to Nourish, for making last night’s family dinner a huge success!  Each year our free after school tutoring program puts on a family dinner where students prepare a meal for their families.  Our family dinners provide a fun, interactive environment for parents and guardians of students to meet each other. The gathering also allows tutors, students and their families to come together and share experiences, resources and just have fun enjoying others’ company.  This year Rachel helped us by providing nutrition education to students and creating a burrito bar menu including homemade salsas, guacamole and calabacitas!  Students eagerly participated by chopping vegetables, shredding cheese and combining ingredients to make delicious dishes.  Along with Rachel, our fabulous volunteer tutors donated time and effort to making this event special for everyone involved.  Thank you to all who volunteered their time and to those who participated in our 2010-2011 family dinner!
