Meets in the Meeting House Kitchen
The scent of fresh omelets wafted through Stony Run Friends Meeting House, as the center of Quaker worship took on a new purpose: cooking. As we entered, the kitchen buzzed with the energy of the many students crammed into a small space. They bustled around each other carrying dishes, rags, knives, and various ingredients.
During this community day, the Cooking Club made casseroles, and omelets with the leftovers. They worked with the organization Our Daily Bread, an employment center that partners with Baltimore City Correctional Center, and has been feeding the hungry in Baltimore for more than 40 years. They focus on serving food to those in need, as well rehabilitation for employees who come from the jail.
So the Cooking Club combines both community service and creativity. Members get to relax and have fun cooking while also helping the community.
“I love it here. I enjoy it a lot,” says Mai Bolster, a sophomore.
“It’s great, adds sophomore Ashley Johnson.
