"Before graduating from YADC, I completed my service-learning experience at Feed The World Cafe with Executive Chef Pat Mathis. It is a restaurant that makes wonderful food and gives back to the community by selling food. Because every plate that they sell means they give one or more meals back to the local community. They give to food services places such as Loaves and Fishes so that they can help people who need that food support.
I learned how to make basically everything on the menu that is served to the customers. I also helped prepare for a catering and did a couple of orders when they needed help on the line. My favorite things I helped make were chicken kabobs and a brisket.
Working with Chef Pat showed me that you can accomplish a lot even if you are going through court/probation problems. You can still make things happen and you can always give back to your community."
