Diabetic Friendly Meals
Cathedral Kitchen has partnered with Project H.O.P.E., a community health center in Camden, in an initiative to help patients with diabetes better manage their condition. This project was funded through a grant from CVS Caremark. Our role in this partnership has been to provide diabetes friendly cooking classes to the patients once a month. We also agreed to provide a diabetes friendly dinner for them twice a month, but rather than just making a healthy meal for a few people, our chefs decided to make the meal for everyone who came in for dinner that evening. Our partnership has been a resounding success: the patients are getting the medical support they need from Project H.O.P. E. and the nutrition education to help them eat healthier from the Kitchen. Our joint efforts are featured in a video on the CVS website. Click on this link to see the video: http://www.cvscaremarkfyi.com/buildinghealthiercommunities
Harvest for Hunger!
Mark your calendars for the Eighth Annual Harvest for Hunger:
Friday, November 7, 2014
Collingswood Grand Ballroom
7:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m.
A huge success in 2013, almost 500 people enjoyed a sampling of more than 130 wines and microbrews that were complemented by a delicious array of hor d’oeuvres including CK’s famous mac n’ cheese bites, mashed potato and slider bars and a variety of desserts. A gourmet artisan chocolate tasting and wine pairing added a special “taste” to the evening.
Guests also had the opportunity to participate in a raffle of more than 50 beautifully wrapped distinctive baskets, each valued between $150 and $300 in addition to bidding on exceptional wines, trips and sports tickets during both silent and live auctions.
Harvest committee member Cheryl Spicer, had nothing but great comments about the evening: “Each year it just keeps getting better! Congratulations to all for making the Harvest for Hunger event a very successful and fabulous affair.”
