Want to build your cooking skills while giving back to the community? To commemorate Asian-Pacific American Heritage Month in May, the Community Service committee is excited to offer our first Skills for Service workshop of this year: Cooking for a Cause.
This workshop is a crash course in Asian cooking. Volunteers will learn from committee member Jay Halim how to make two different yet simple and delicious Asian dishes. Due to popular vote the dishes will be one Indonesian ("Balinese Spicy Pork") and one Singaporean ("Sour Lime Chicken"). The cooked meals will be donated to the residents of the New England Center for Homeless Veterans, a multi-dimension service and care provider dedicated to assisting veterans who are facing or at-risk of homelessness. Participants will be allowed to doggy bag some of their creations.
Volunteers will be required to help with light prep work on the night before the event and to help with clean up at the end of the event. Class size is capped at eight students and participants will be required to sign a waiver form (Liability, Food Safety & Hygiene Practice).
The class is free for NAAAP members. The cost is $10 for non-members to help cover the cost of food.
Please RSVP on the NAAAP website if you would like to volunteer:
