Culinary Style and Grace

December 5, 2016 No Comments


On December 1st, AUNI Nutrition Educator Sophia Canady had the opportunity to volunteer with Universal Audenried Charter High School’s culinary scholars at the Evening of Style and Grace Fashion Show and Fundraiser presented by Faatimah and Kenneth Gamble at the University of the Arts. The Winter Wonderland theme was lovely and the students did a terrific job cooking and catering for the event.

Last week’s nectarines tasting in the West and Southwest Philadelphia public schools we work with was a big — and delicious — hit. Michelle Todd, Food Service Director at Lea Elementary, and her staff loved the nectarines as much as the students!
