Humanim’s culinary social enterprise, City Seeds, partnered with our Developmental Disability Services for an in-person culinary class on Valentine’s Day! Individuals enjoyed going on a trip to the City Seeds teaching kitchen in Baltimore and learning how to create chocolate-covered strawberries in the class led by Chef Aharon. Chef Aharon shared that the strawberries they made were for gifting to others since it was Valentine’s Day – a helpful way to touch hearts and build community. Everyone in the class was excited to share their Valentines!
The City Seeds’ Culinary Arts program is a brand new initiative that brings the skill and joy of cooking to the I/DD community! Offering both, virtual and in-person classes, the Culinary Arts program provides a broad range of cooking classes for individuals who are interested in the culinary arts, including basic cooking skills, “food for fun” classes, independent cooking & living, which incorporates kitchen and gardening skills, as well as vocational instruction and ServSafe certification.
