What's one of the few things that's more fun than meeting fun, diverse, passionate high school youth each year? Getting to know weekly classroom assistants who are equally fun, diverse, and passionate about supporting DC youth in the kitchen and beyond. We've had lawyers, college students, non-profit folk, and nutritionists volunteer with Brainfood and enrich our programs with their energy and interests.
Classroom assistants are a huge part of what makes our well-oiled machine, well, oiled. So when Ashley Rasmussen, one of the Chinatown classroom assistants from 2010, requested to interview me for a blogpost on nutrition, cooking, and high school students, I was happy to help her out. Also -- check out the sleek and colorful Nutrition Gurus site for streamlined tips and articles on health and well-being.
Thanks again Ashley for the interview, and for keeping Brainfood on your radar!
