CAMBA Where WE Can

CAMBA is working tirelessly in our communities to ensure our clients and their families are fully informed about COVID-19 and are taking the necessary actions to stay safe and healthy. T his is a rapidly changing situation and CAMBA programs are adjusting to meet the needs of disadvantaged New Yorkers who are struggling with housing, education, health, employment and legal matters. Out of caution for everyone’s health, and under the constraints mandated to contain the coronavirus, we continue to provide services by appointment over the phone, or video conferencing.

As you can imagine, these are extraordinary times demanding extraordinary efforts on our part to maintain and provide our services in a safe and healthy environment. The increased expense to modify our services, maintain the additional cleaning and disinfecting of client spaces, and expected skyrocketing costs of providing emergency food services will become critical.  If you are able to donate during this emergency, we would be deeply appreciative.
      
There is information about our services that are posted to our website with frequent updates.
When Top Chefs Don't Get Chopped
On February 27, 2020 and March 5, 2020, CAMBA Gardens II held two friendly food competitions: The First Annual Chef It Up competition (for adults, photo left) and First Annual Jr. Chefs' Face-off competition (for students, photo right). The competitions featured teams who were challenged with producing the best, healthy dishes. Judges scored their dishes on taste, creativity and plating. It was part of a program presented by Keys to Abundant Life, Inc.
 
The adults participated in Keys' eight-week culinary program onsite; the students, with their parents, participated in Keys' 12-week culinary program onsite after school. The participants took classes to learn how to prepare healthy foods for a healthier lifestyle. They learned about healthier and less common food options/alternatives. Participants used coconut oil (vs. canola oil), ground turkey (vs. beef), and quinoa (vs. rice). They learned various techniques including knife skills, how to read and follow recipes, plating, and creativity.
 
During the competitions, teams worked together to cook meals with secret ingredients: quinoa, tomatoes, mushrooms and zucchini, to name a few. All participants took home a medal, a chef hat and apron for their participation; everyone was a champion! Our thanks to Keys to Abundant Life Inc. for their awesome programs!
