Last summer, Community Servings' CEO David B. Waters was invited to join the Barr Fellows Class of 2017, recognizing his leadership and impact at Community Servings and within the Greater Boston community. The Barr Foundation's Barr Fellowship celebrates exceptional leaders, invests in them and their organizations, and cultivates a network of civic leaders committed to Greater Boston.
Last month, the Barr Fellows Class of 2017 took a ten-day group trip to Rwanda. The Learning Journey is designed to immerse fellows in a collective, challenging growth experience, offering inspiration through exchanges with leaders working to improve lives in another country. While abroad, David shared his experiences with Community Servings staff through email, focusing on the food and food issues of Rwanda.
RECIPE FROM OUR NUTRITION EDUCATION CLASS: A Taste of African Heritage
In partnership with Oldways, our dietitians recently led a culinary journey through African foods in our "A Taste of African Heritage" nutrition education class. Attendees learned how to prepare spices and herbs, leafy greens, whole grains, beans, tubers, fruits, and vegetables that have sustained Africans and their descendants for generations. A popular recipe featured in class was Senegalese Sweet Potato Peanut Stew.
