Rotary Club of Green Valley June 2019 Meeting Schedule
Featured Speaker: Abby Rosen, Caridad Community Kitchen

Abby Rosen started with Caridad Community Kitchen 6 years ago as the sous chef for their culinary training program and is now their
Program Manager, overseeing all programs and operations of the kitchen. She has over 13 years of professional baking experience and a
BS in Hotel and Restaurant Management.

She told us the Food Bank’s mission is to feed the hungry today and build a healthy, hunger-free tomorrow. Caridad Kitchen (“caridad”
means charity) supports the Food Bank with community meals, culinary training, and contract meals. Started in 1996 by Holy Family
Church, Caridad was acquired by Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona in 2011, and they expanded from 5000 ft² to 10,000 ft² in
2017 and became a meal partner for Pima County Meals on Wheels. Caridad has 15 staff, 90 volunteers who assemble, package, and
distribute meals, 2 to 3 dozen students, and 14 community partners. They serve 9500 free meals each month, 7 days a week, at 10 sites.
They operate with both donated and purchased food.

The culinary training program includes 400 hours of culinary and job and life skills instruction. Students get a week of paid internship as
part of that. Rosen said that health inspector train at their sites because their standards are higher than ordinary restaurants. They are
aiming at improving client choices at their meal sites, improving training program evaluation, and helping with staff work life balance.
Scholarships help local students get a head start
on their college education. Applications for
scholarships can be found on our
forms page.

RI Rep Chris Ashcraft presented Bill McCreery with his Paul
Harris +1 pin, and Secretary Michael Pease with Paul Harris +2.
As “price” Chris asked each of them to say something about why
they are in Rotary. Bill mentioned the things Rotary does around
the world, particularly nearly eliminating polio. Michael just said
he gets teary-eyed trying to talk about it.
Loss of a Friend

We are saddened by the passing of Dr.
Wilfred (Bill) Miller. He was a sojourner
from Whitefish, Montana for many years,
and he joined our Club in 2017. He passed
suddenly this last week from complications
of an infection. He was one of the most
consistently cheerful people we knew.
