With generous support from the Citi Foundation, staff of five UNH member agencies increased their capacity to provide effective college access services for low-income students through participation in the 60-hour Foundation and Framework for College Access Counseling Course.
Those agencies were CAMBA, The Educational Alliance, Grand Street Settlement, Henry Street Settlement and Jacob A. Riis Neighborhood Settlement House. Participants will continue to build on their skills through peer learning activities facilitated by UNH.
NY Daily News: Cooking for Healthy Communities' program to train cooks at shelters, day cares, in nutrition
"When you use fresh ingredients, it's more exciting to work with," said John Graves, 61, who has cooked for kids at Mosholu Montefiore Community Center for decades. He said he gets bored making the same recipes over and over again on a four-week cycle - and wants the kids at his center to learn how to eat better.
"I sit at home and watch the cooking channels to get ideas," he said. "My focus is on the younger ones. You can get them to eat more vegetables and things like that and then by the time they're five, they're not afraid of broccoli." The program, called Cooking for Healthy Communities, was developed by United Neighborhood Houses and will eventually extend to hundreds of cooks.
