The BCAE Teams Up with Local Food Rescue Lovin’ Spoonfuls and Celebrity Chef Tiffani Faison for Educational Thanksgiving Class
On Tuesday, November 13th, 2012, Lovin’ Spoonfuls founder Ashley Stanley and award-winning Chef Tiffani Faison, “Top Chef” runner-up and owner of Sweet Cheeks Q, located in Boston, MA, will join forces for “Lovin’ Thanksgiving Leftovers,” a hands-on cooking class at the Boston Center for Adult Education (BCAE). Students will learn how to help Lovin’ Spoonfuls’ achieve its goal to reduce food waste and maximize food resources by turning their favorite Thanksgiving leftovers into unique new dishes!
Over 96 billion pounds of food are wasted each year - roughly 40% of all the available food in the United States. Additionally, $1 billion is spent by taxpayers annually to incinerate this discarded, perfectly good food while millions of people go hungry. Since founding Lovin’ Spoonfuls in 2010, Stanley and her team have rescued and distributed over 150,000lbs of fresh, healthy food to various organizations in the Greater Boston area—feeding thousands of fellow Bostonians fresh, healthy meals.
In this class co-taught by Stanley and Faison, students will cook alongside one of Boston’s best chefs as they learn more about Lovin’ Spoonfuls mission and how they can make simple changes in their daily lives to help eliminate food waste. Students will learn how to transform leftover turkey and stuffing into new, creative meals to make the most of those leftovers in the days after Thanksgiving. What better way to kick-off the holiday season than by enjoying good food and learning how to give back? Registration is necessary. To sign up please call 617-267-4430 or visit www.bcae.org.
