I'm in the 'latter' category. LOL

Welcome to DC! A friend of mine was a pastry chef. She introduced a program at women's shelters where she taught (as a volunteer) "how to cook from scratch" cooking classes to help those in transition prepare healthier meals that cost less to prepare. Part of the program included taking the women grocery shopping (using food vouchers--the equivalent of food stamps in the US) and menu planning (again, based on what could be 'purchased' using the food vouchers). I think what you are doing is very admirable.

hilo lori, we're glad to have you join us here at dc. i can't tell you how thrilled (and surprised) i am, to hear that we are training actual Chefs to cook for the homeless. this, to me, is an indication of a positive change of attitudes in our society toward the poor and the homeless people among us.
