A hearty group of volunteers from Lake Tahoe Community College (LTCC) donated their time to Bread and Broth recently, helping to prepare and serve a hot meal to hungry locals as part of the Adopt a Day of Nutrition program.
Four LTCC staffers donned aprons and kitchen gloves to help prepare and serve food, and assist with the cleanup. As part of its commitment to serve the South Lake Tahoe community, the college “adopts a day” once every quarter, organized by Virginia Boyar, Dean of Instruction and Career and Technical Education. This was the fourth time LTCC’s management team adopted a day, with the goal of giving all managers and administrators the chance to participate. Last week’s volunteers were Dean Boyar, Dean of Instruction Kurt Green, Computer Services Director Dave Burba, and Child Development Center Director Michelle Sower.
Bread and Broth’s Adopt a Day program gives local businesses an opportunity to serve the community by picking up the $250 cost to have one hot meal purchased and prepared, and to provide four to five employees to help pull the meal off. Bread and Broth serves two hot meals each week, on Mondays and Fridays.
The Adopt a Day of Nutrition program was started about four years ago, allowing Bread and Broth to more consistently serve meals throughout the year – not just during the holidays. If your business is interested in donating towards and providing staff for a Monday or Friday hot meal, please contact Carol Gerard at (530) 542-2876.
