Throughout the year the College’s Sodexo chef, Colum, holds cooking classes in association with the Charitable Foundation. With themed nights including brunch, Italian and burger night, these classes provided not only a relief from study, but life skills through food preparation and nutrition. By gold coin donation, these classes raised funds to buy ingredients used to cook a meal for the families staying at Ronald McDonald House. This year, five collegians and Colum went to Ronald McDonald house on September 6th to make homemade burgers for the visiting families. We found it a very rewarding experience especially when we were able to sit down and chat with the residents we cooked for, each with their own story. Thank you to Colum and Sodexo for continuing to support this program and to Ronald McDonald House for having us, we look forward to our continued association.
