Heartland Beef Incorporated fed approximately 75 youth at the Boys and Girls Club Crestmont location this past Friday, September 22, at the Huse Culinary Lab’s inaugural supper.
After a long day at school, the roughly 75 kids of the new BGC Crestmont location dined on deconstructed beef Manhattans (a la juicy Roast Beef Classic sandwiches and savory mashed potatoes and au jus gravy) with Salted Caramel and Chocolate Chip or (the preferred option…) Triple Chocolate cookie, apples, and milk in the first of two meals provided by HBI. They also went home with chicken parmesan over a bed of penne noodles, side salads, breadstick, and milk.
These children all receive free or reduced lunches at school and often go home for the weekend not knowing if they’ll eat again until Monday. HBI had the privilege of serving this wonderful group of very polite, colorful young ones for the very first Friday Meal served out of the Huse Culinary Lab (see here for more on the HCL). If you would like more information about feeding the club one Friday during the school year, you can reach out to Crestmont Unit Director, Jon York, at 812-332-5311 ext: 231.
HBI would like to thank Chris Smith for coordinating, Jaimie Schwartzman for assisting, the 1043 Team for ALL of their help, and the office crew for making this happen!
