On Monday, 8 March the Year 12 Health Class, with the help of Mrs Jillian Johns and senior Hospitality students, implemented the final phase of their health promotion action strategy. The innovation ‘Cook Up for the Homeless’ (CU4H) aimed to use the Glennie community as a resource to maintain, and strengthen current levels of support provided to individuals experiencing homelessness in the local Toowoomba community. The Health class contacted Tony’s Community Kitchen, a local support group made up of a volunteer base, curious to know how they could contribute to the cause. The Health class set a goal to make 70 dinners of spaghetti bolognese which would be served to the community later that night. Through the generosity of the Glennie community, more than enough ingredients and money were donated towards CH4U. As one big team, the Health and Hospitality girls worked together, chopping vegetables, cooking mince, boiling pasta, dividing portions and most importantly, washing the dirty dishes. At 3:30pm the meals were presented to a very grateful and appreciative representative from Tony’s Kitchen. We would like to sincerely thank Mrs Johns. Without her support, this activity could not have happened. Tony’s Community Kitchen has a Facebook page if you would like to learn more about this wonderful group.
