A culinary arts program is held at the Precious Moments School & Orphanage. This school, located in the Colonia Santa Fe neighborhood, is also a residence to a dozen orphaned children.
Project Manager Sharie Martiny teaches weekly culinary arts classes to the orphans, helping them learn to cook a variety of gourmet meals, bake bread, deserts, cakes and muffins.
The children are introduced to new cuisine and learn about healthy nutrition. Not only do they learn the practical life skills of cooking, baking, as well as team working, but the orphans also benefit from eating healthier meals at the center, since the regular school kitchen staff also observe the classes.
