Every Thursday from 4-7 at RBAC, Beach Fresh participants learn life and cooking skills from Amanda Lopez-Castanon and Gabbie Price.
Beach Fresh is a program that is open to all RBAC youth. These young adults are learning skills like learning how to budget, cooking simple, nutritious, and delicious meals. The young adults will carry these skills into their everyday lives.
These meals are a chance for people at RBAC to connect with each other. After they are done cooking they sit down and eat together. It’s a good time filled with conversation, laughter, and of course good food. Bahsan Ahmed a Beach Fresh participant says that she has “Learned about knife skills, how to use the oven, and she is looking forward to creating a cookbook with simple recipes.” It’s been a learning experience for youth and adults alike.
Although Beach Fresh currently serves RBAC , In the future RBAC hopes to open up the program for youth in the community.
