A Heartwarming Night Celebrating Our Mission

By November 12, 2020May 3rd, 2024Archive

Last night, we celebrated a wonderful evening with new and long-time friends at our Art of Cooking Virtual Fundraiser to support The Sylvia Center’s mission to inspire young people to become healthy eaters and advocates for healthy food in their families and communities.

Together, we raised over $320,000 that will enable The Sylvia Center to continue its work delivering high impact programming while helping kids develop a toolkit of skills necessary to be successful beyond the classroom and the kitchen. 

A tremendous thank you to our emcee for the evening, Jamie McDonald, and to our incredible friend and ally, Chef Wu, for demonstrating how to make a delicious Roasted Butternut Squash Soup. Want to try it yourself? See the recipe below!

With a successful pivot to virtual programming, The Sylvia Center has become a “go-to resource” for our community partners anxious to keep their students learning and engaged. Teen Culinary Apprentice Terry said it best, “Thank you so much for helping me throughout quarantine and giving me a place to show my cooking skills.”

Were you unable to attend? A recording of the event will be available on The Sylvia Center website on Friday!

It’s not too late to support our critical programs and equitable food access initiative.

Make your gift today!
