This beautiful spring afternoon PhilanthroParty combined organic gardening, conscientious cooking, a documentary, and feeding the needy. Here's the recipe! 1. Take a top local chef, Matt from Heirloom LA, who donated his time, talent, home-grown veggies... and 4 entirely WHOLE, lovingly raised chickens. To prepare us for a meal we will cook and serve at a homeless shelter, he taught a bunch of us LemonAID Warriors how to cook a healthy meal.
2. Mix in a trip to Jasper's garden, grown courtesy of Katies Krops for Matt's tips about growing food that will eventually feed the hungry in our community.
3. Top with beautiful table decorations gathered from our yard and hand made napkins ( a special thank you to our newest Warrior, the compassionate and creative Juliet!)
4. Serve and EAT with the Webb Family who cook with us and film the day as part of their youth activism documentary called One Year Road Trip.
6. This recipe and Matt's lessons will keep fresh in our minds till we recreate this meal and use our new cooking skills to feed the (formerly) homeless Easter Brunch at PATH.
With Easter approaching, Warrior, AVA through a PhilanthroParty for the 10th birthday. Click here to learn about AVA! Instead of presents, she asked for donations to our local grocery store so we could buy the ingredients to cook this meal for LemonAID Warrior's Easter Brunch at PATH homeless Shelter.
The final pay-off of this PhilanthroParty was when we put our cooking lessons to work ! We through an Easter Brunch Party where we fed 60 homeless residents of PATH shelter in downtown Los Angeles.
