Intentional Community Dinner with BUGS & Moving Forward....


This past Friday the BUGS Cooking & Nutrition Educator, Nicola Norman organized an intentional community dinner for the students, families, and staff at the Frederick Douglass/Isaac Myers Museum to celebrate our achievements and eat delicious food!

With generous donations and support from local food businesses such as fish and vegetable wraps from Terra Cafe, a delicious curried rice salad from Neopol Smokery in Belvedere Square, pork and chicken sliders from Waterfront Kitchen, and dessert was prepared by the hard working BUGS students who made chocolate cake with strawberries and icing! We had a special guest DJ Mr. 14th, and a slideshow with some of our favorite BUGS memories in pictures.


Here are some photos of the BUGS students preparing dessert for the dinner:

The staff that was able to make it, were not shy about filling their plates either!

Our BUGS volunteer students also made their own decorations for the event:
Due to changes in federal budget allocations, the BUGS program is going through a transition and transformation. This means that BUGS wont be starting again when the school year starts, but there are people working hard behind the scenes to ensure that BUGS is able to reemerge in the near future. This summer has truly been a memorable experience as cooking teacher at BUGS, and the power of after school programs is something that could never be under or overestimated. Here's to BUGS!
