Hey wassup! It’s Khatsini, giving you the scoop on what went down at FEEST tonight. Firstly, great news! FEEST is expanding! Before the actual dinner, we had our first meeting about holding FEEST in the near future at High Point Community Center. We discussed what FEEST would look like there, what possible times it would happen and other legistical factors. So far, we are planning to have FEEST 5 Mondays (every other Monday) during the end of this school year and in the summer at High Point. I’m one of the leaders for this project and I also live in High Point. I’m really excited to be working with other Youngstown staff and youth on starting this FEEST. I also think this will be a great opportunity to start building more connections and community in High Point. Look out for future news about FEEST at High Point! Okay, now for the food! Today’s food was Delicious! With a capital D! I talked to Jessie and Robby, the head and assistant chefs in the kitchen and they helped me out with the menu specifics.We had plenty of fruit: apples, strawberries with rhubarb (that made my mouth water!), fried tofu, fried yams, fruit mixed with cucumbers! I forget which type of fruit it was, but it was the bomb! The main dish was orzo (kind of like a thick rice) with Kalamata olives, chives, red & white onions, feta cheese and asparagus. We had two types of salads with funky fancy dressing (orange juice with olive oil and vinegar with pepper, strawberry jam, salt and Dijon mustard). I was so full, but I had to go back for seconds it was just that good. Seriously! We had about 3 or 4 people come through today for their first time and we all had a really chill time just talking and hanging out. I know everybody was super glad to be eating because the plates were cleaned in no time (so was the kitchen!). The sun was shining, people were smiling, the kitchen crew made amazing food. This FEEST was all around beautiful. Be sure to come through, and don’t hesitate to stay for clean-up =].
