Breaking Bread in Our Community
How can we plan and prepare a meal to feed people in our community?
In this project, students partner with a local organization to plan a large-scale community supper–type meal for members of the community. This meal could serve one of several possible purposes:
- Feeding hungry community members
- Honoring a specific group of people (elders, firefighters, volunteers)
- Celebrating or commemorating a special event
- Building neighborhood connections
- Fundraising for a cause
Given an estimated number of attendees, students research recipes and food prices and identify quantities and costs of ingredients to develop a reasonable and actionable plan for the meal.
