Students in the World Language Society at Elwood-John H. Glenn High School gave back to the community on Feb. 15, when they coordinated a meal donation effort. Under the guidance of teachers Nicole Correia and Nicole Gendjoian, the students took on various responsibilities in planning, preparing for and executing a successful initiative.

The students cooked baked ziti and assembled vegetable platters for the Huntington Tri Community and Youth Agency. They also created two meal baskets for families in need.

Leading up to the event, students were provided with a grocery list and went shopping on their own. Some of the students had never cooked before but were eager to learn new skills and follow instructions in order to help. Five stations were set up for small groups to follow the recipe.

Ms. Correia and Ms. Gendjoian were thrilled to see the students’ enthusiasm and hope to schedule another day of cooking in March.
