the project

Our 1st cooking class was FUN AND WISDOM IN GRANDMA'S was a suprise success. We were also suprised at all the young men that said they just wanted to watch and eat, but quickly joined in the cooking process, class after class bringing more of their friends each time. Now we want to '' Call Out'' to the young men in the community (young ladies are very welcome ) using Grandpa in the kitchen. We are featuring recipes from popular male chefs.

why we're doing it

The CONCERNED CITIZENS COMMUNITY COUNCIL  motto 'Necessary fo Change' Our community comes first. Talking about problems are fine but action is better even if its just a helping hand with basic issues. THATS A START.....Get some dialog going and learn  how to help. We want to bring back pantries in homes, teach quilting from scrap clothing, baking from scratch, knitting, arts and crafts. Basics that made you comfortable in your home. Every youth that comes thru our doors is taught to sew on a button...the idea ....a start of 'Oh' I can do that, show me more usually comes next. There are times you can disable disruptive behavior when you introduce creative alternatives. EVERYONE IS ARTISTICALLY more projects can be introduced.
