Kemi's First Week @ Brainfood!
Guest Blogger: Kemi Sobowale
This week was my first week at Brainfood and I’m very excited to be working here this summer. I first learned about Brainfood and its mission to help high school age teens learn life skills through cooking through my school. I applied to do my practicum here and was luckily accepted into the organization. My goals for the summer are to help Brainfood develop a take home recipe guide as well as help review the way they evaluate their participants and target audience.
This summer I am working with the Community MVPs program, which is a program that takes graduates from the Brainfood program and trains them on how to develop and run local workshops. This summer they will be doing farmer’s market demonstrations around the city, which is a way for them to build their leadership skills as well as do some community outreach.
This first week was like a crash course into Brainfood’s mission and goals. I then got to familiarize myself with Brainfood’s pantry and supply closet. I even got a chance to blend smoothies using a bike blender in that week's farmer's market demonstration. All in all it was an eventful week here at Brainfood and I can’t wait to see what’s next.
