Summer is always a busy season in our Brainfood kitchens. So busy, that sometimes we forget to share all of the fun with you, our amazing friends and supporters. But that ends here.
Since the end of June, Box Project participants have been hard at work running a 6-week CSA out of our Mt. Vernon Square site. Each week our teens prepare a number of handmade food items to pair with an ever-changing variety of fresh produce from local farms. Box Project subscribers pick up their box of themed goodies each Thursday.
Hours of brainstorming, planning, recipe testing, shopping, and food prep lovingly go into each and every box. Take a peek at some of the action here, and feast your eyes on some cheerful faces and tasty fare.
Monday: With no time to waste, teams start the week with food prep. Our giant whiteboard/master checklist keeps us on track throughout the week.
