"These are really great for making tamales and Mexican dishes" - Club Family
SLO Food Bank
One of our favorite times off the month is when San Luis Obispo Food Bank comes to visit! The youth get to personally "shop" through a farmers' market. One by one, they choose their favorite veggies with the Food Bank dollars they are given. All the veggies given allow for all youth to create delicious healthy dishes with their family! Our visit ends with a fun version of connect four, where we match and name veggies or fruits.
