What an overwhelming response we had to this month's cooking for The Second Step.  Who knew we would have too many people to fit into the TBA Kitchen?  What an AWESOME problem to have!  To those of you who volunteered this month after we were filled, we hope you will volunteer next time.  We had a great group on Sunday and welcomed four new volunteers: Laurel and Howie Salend & Julie Paltrowitz and her daughter Lily. They joined veteran cooks Jackie Dahlquist & her daughter Charlotte and Bunny Aronson. We had a very productive day in the kitchen making chili, cornbread and brownies. Howie used his elbow grease to open the giant cans needed for the chili recipe as well as to wash the over sized pots and pans. Vilma from The Second Step relayed to Debbie Hart-Klein (when dropping the home-cooked meal off) that the families were all excited for the meal and are so appreciative to TBA for their kindness.  Thank you to everyone who volunteered....

As part of this year’s focus on Tikkun Olam, Repairing the World, grade 7 has been learning about hunger and homelessness.  Each student had the opportunity to choose where they wanted to volunteer.  The first choice was to go to Hearth, an organization to end elder homelessness.  At Hearth they would provide a meal and eat with the residents. The second choice was to shop at Bed, Bath and Beyond to buy products for women from The Women’s Lunch Place, a shelter serving homeless women in the Greater Boston Area who have received housing.   The students in the photos below chose to to to Bed, Bath and Beyond.  They purchased necessities that the women will need to set up their new homes such as kitchenware, bedding, cleaners, utensils, towels and clocks.

On Monday the 7th graders returned to Hearth to serve dinner to the residents there. After learning a bit more about Hearth and the services they provide, the 7th graders had a chance to talk with the residents. Everyone was so grateful to have dinner served to them and asked that TBA return soon.
