FINAL SCENE A new generation is getting its feet wet in the river of grass | By Kristen Desmond LeFevre

On the cover Each year, local artists submit their work to be considered for the Palm Beach Charity Register cover competition—a tradition that highlights our vibrant arts community. Readers vote for their favorites via an online poll. This year, the winning piece is “Reef Rider,” by Lake Worth-based watercolorist Ellen Negley. “My watercolors are a reflection of my s rroundings,” Negley says. “I am captivated by colorful settings that are fille with action.” For Negley, “Reef Rider” is a nod to the fragility and beauty of our South Florida environment. “The sea turtle tells us the health of the ocean and the ocean tells us the health of our planet,” she says. “Climate change and sea level rise negatively impact endangered sea turtles. We must work together to protect our oceans, marine life, beaches, and the future of the planet.” (negleywatercolors.com)

et’s be honest: the “new normal” we’ve been promised postpandemic isn’t exactly what we had imagined. What was touted as a “hot vaxx” summer ended up lukewarm at best. Now firmly entrenched in the fall (and still not “post” anything, pandemic-wise), we continue to be awash in a sea of daily decisions about vaccines, masking, travel troubles, booster shots, social distancing, and breakthrough infections. Thanks to COVID-19, things were a little less glittery during Palm Beach’s storied social season last year. But that didn’t stop local nonprofits from working to support important issues and advocating for community members in need. In this issue of Palm Beach Charity Register, we’re highlighting organizations that forged ahead and got downright creative in the midst of the many challenges posed by COVID-19. Keri Morrison at Live Like Jake knows that even a global pandemic can't pause the threat of childhood drowning (particularly in Florida, where the state ranks at the top of this tragic statistic). Turn to page 18 to read about how the organization’s new indoor pool is the latest local tool in making sure not one more child drowns in Palm Beach County. With many of us keeping a low profile at home to #flatte thecurve, donning a suit (or let’s face it, anything other than workout wear) was simply not top of mind during most of 2020 and 2021. But for Tae Edmonds and his nonprofit Suits for Seniors, being dressed for success is one of the many ways this innovative organization helps underserved youth plan successful paths (page 22). On page 20, we’re reminded that COVID-19 isn’t the only health threat facing local folks. The Cancer Alliance of Help and Hope continues to support the day-to-day needs of patients battling cancer as the pandemic complicates the demands on our health care system. For 29 years, the Palm Beach Charity Register has brought you stories like these—of inspiring nonprofits that make a difference in Palm Beach County. But we also offer opportunities for you to get involved. Take a look at our listings of local organizations and fundraising festivities starting on page 41. It’s more than just your go-to guide to 165 glamorous events—many of which are back in-person this year with safety protocols in place. But it’s also an opportunity to find a passion, a way to give back. Attend an event or two, make a donation where you can, or offer your time and talent to help elevate a cause that speaks to you. If there’s good news to be had (and there’s always a bright spot), it’s this: The generosity and ingenuity of our community are seemingly boundless. We’ve got everything we need to create whatever kind of “new normal” we want to see—as individuals and Palm Beachers alike.

SHOW YOUR STRIPES

FLOWER POWER If you’re looking for a way to deliver a true style moment, slide into one of Tom Ford’s gorgeous silk jacquard evening jackets. While the line’s animal prints are definitel a walk on the wild side, the flo al print Atticus jackets feel like an ideal fit or a Palm Beach winter. (tomford.com)

Pinstripes have been reclaiming a well-deserved spot on the menswear scene. Polo Ralph Lauren (ralphlauren. com) offers the pinstripe twill suit jacket as an inspired alternative to the ubiquitous blue blazer (as well as a brown Kent Striped Dobby suit as part of its Purple Label). The pinstriped Regent suit from Brooks Brothers (brooksbrothers. com), in an ultra-lightweight, breathable wool, is another smart option for those ready to greet the formal world again.

SHOW YOU CARE

It’s important to remember names because it shows the other person that you pay attention and you care enough to remember details. It also sets you apart from other people as a good conversationalist who listens.

REPETITION IS KEY

A collaboration with former Bachelorette contestant and fashionista Bennett Jordan, these loafers come in sumptuous colors and are handcrafted in Italy. (deltoroshoes.com) 14

When you meet someone for the fi st time, try repeating their name in conversation to solidify their name in your memory.

ADJUST YOUR MINDSET Don’t use excuses like, “I recognize faces, but I’m not a name person.” You have to have the mindset that you want to remember names.

MAKE MENTAL MEMORY JOGS

If you think of a famous person or an object and associate that with your new acquaintance, the mental cue will help jog your memory the next time you encounter them.

WRITE IT DOWN

If you’re worried you’re going to forget a name, write it down in the notes of your smartphone. Or, follow up by connecting with the person on social media.

6

ASK FOR HELP

If you’re sitting next to someone at an event and they are with their spouse or partner, you can say under your breath,“Please tell me your spouse’s name again.”

FAKE IT UNTIL YOU MAKE IT Try extending your hand and saying your name and hope that they will follow suit by saying their name. Or just be honest and let a person know that you remember where you met them and then say, “Please remind me what your name is again.”

It’s an age-old Palm Beach problem: You leave your house looking photo-op ready, but midway through your swanky soiree, a mirror check reveals that your makeup is a pale shadow of its former self. Thankfully, Venezuelan model-turned-makeup artist Jess Bonilla has tips to keep your beauty game on point. (jessbonilla.com)

FAILS AND FIXES Fail: Not properly prepping skin Fix: Begin with a skin refresher mist and follow with a good moisturizer. It will be harder for you to blend without prepping correctly. Fail: Powder-based foundations that crease easily Fix: Start with a cream foundation and blend it with a brush or sponge. Fail: Humidity, sweat, and natural oils will slip the makeup off our face. Applying too much powder will dry your skin and make the look heavy. Fix: Apply translucent powder lightly with a brush (or use a setting spray) to set all cream products. Fail: Excess liner that builds up in the corner of the eye Fix: Remove the excess product with a Q-tip and then reapply waterproof liner if needed. Fail: Eye shadow that becomes creased and caked Fix: Prep the lid with a good base or primer, like Mac Paint Pot. This will ensure that no matter how much you sweat or dance, your shadow will last.

TIPS FOR THE PERFECT POUT • Exfoliate lips fi st and apply lip balm before you start your makeup application. • Move to face/eye makeup fi st and finish with li s. • Define li s with a liner, then apply a long-lasting lipstick like Maybelline SuperStay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick or Dior Addict Lip Tattoo. • Top it off with a lip gl ss if you prefer glossy lips.

WHEN IT’S TIME FOR TOUCH-UPS: Carry these four products in your purse to freshen your makeup during any event: 1. Blotting papers: Press them on the t-zone to absorb natural oils and help mattify your look. 2. Translucent powder: Apply in the center of your face to help eliminate any oiliness or extra glow in your makeup. 3. Lipstick: Use blotting papers to dab your lips, then apply a new layer of lipstick to freshen your look. 4. Setting spray: Spritz to refresh your skin and prolong the life of your makeup.

Charity Begins at HOME Although Palm Beach and Collier counties lead the state in charitable giving, Florida nonprofits need to en age donors across wealth strata By Judy Martel American generosity marked an all-time high in 2019, with charitable donations totaling nearly $450 billion, but that impressive statistic doesn’t tell the whole story. In Florida, a different report reveals an uneven philanthropic landscape—one mostly concentrated in two ultra-wealthy counties: Collier and Palm Beach. A study of individual giving from 2011 to 2018 by the Florida Nonprofit Alliance statewide coalition designed to strengthen and promote the nonprofit sector shows that the bulk of individual charitable contributions in 2018 originated in Southeast and Southwest Florida. Essentially, the state’s donor pool has been steadily shrinking from a cross-section of Floridians to a smaller group of wealthier contributors.

“I think it’s fair to expect the wealthy to give more,” says Leah McDermott, program manager of Florida Nonprofit Alliance. But disproportionate giving means some communities will benefit while others struggle. Individuals make up the lion’s share of charitable donors and every

THE MONEY DOESN’T MEAN LESS BECAUSE THE AMOUNT IS LESS. WE HOPE WE CAN INSPIRE ALL INCOME LEVELS IN ALL REGIONS OF THE STATE TO GIVE.” —Leah McDermott, program manager of Florida Nonprofit Allianc

contribution, however small, can still make an impact. “The money doesn’t mean less because the amount is less,” she says. “We hope we can inspire all income levels in all regions of the state to give.” Based on IRS data for charitable giving, in 2011, 47 percent of the total donations in the state came from individuals with an adjusted

016_SHOP_GIVING_2022.indd 17

gross income of $200,000 or more. By 2018, 75 percent of contributions came from upper-income donors, although the number of donors declined, says McDermott. What’s more, donors in just four Florida counties— Palm Beach, Miami-Dade, Broward, and Collier—were responsible for 46 percent of all charitable contributions in the state. Two of those counties were notable. From 2016 to 2018, Palm Beach County donations increased by $539,000—27 percent—while Collier County came in second with an increase of $106,000. Philanthropic giving in Florida will continue to fluc uate annually based on various factors, including income security, stock market performance, and community need. “We don’t have 2020 data, but we think the pandemic will show a spike in emergency giving,” McDermott says. “Going forward in 2021 and 2022, there’s a concern that donations will drop.” Florida Nonprofit Alliance Executive Director Sabeen Perwaiz finds hope in the infl x of new residents to Florida. The test in Florida will be finding ways to consistently engage donors across the wealth strata. “Since the housing bust recession a decade ago, charitable contributions from those with incomes under $100,000 have been dropping off,” says Perwaiz, “and we really do need that to come back.” PALM BEACH CHARITY REGISTER

Water Power

The Live Like Jake Foundation’s new pool is a driving force in the fight to end childhood drowning

Live Like Jake's new indoor pool facility means greater access to life-saving swim lessons for children as young as 6 months old.

By Parker Leipzig Twenty-one seconds: Turning to talk to a friend, checking your phone, grabbing something from your bag. Keri Morrison, founder of Palm Beach Gardens-based nonprofit Live Like Jake, says that’s all the time it takes for a child to drown. Morrison knows this all too well. After her almost 3-year-old son Jake drowned in 2013, she established the Live Like Jake Foundation to promote drowning prevention through Infant Swimming Resource (ISR) self-rescue training. Created by Dr. Harvey Barnett in 1966, the ISR method teaches babies as young as 6 months old how to fl at, and children as young as 1 year old how to swim. Morrison says she advocates for ISR because it teaches children of all ages how to rescue themselves by fl ating in an emergency situa-

18

tion like falling into a pool or off a dock. Morrison enrolled her daughters Julia and Josie in ISR to keep them safe in or around water. Still, her family found itself in the midst of a media frenzy after a video of then-13-month-old Josie performing ISR’s signature roll-back-to-fl at sequence went viral in 2015. As negative comments about the video flooded social media, Morrison appeared on news outlets from NBC’s Today Show to Fox & Friends to educate the public on the importance of water safety. “I put all that negative stuff aside. Even if it just reaches one parent, which I know we already have, that saves one life. It’s worth it,” Morrison says. While she stresses the importance of ISR training, Morrison knows these lessons—which can run an average of $75 per week for five private lessons of 10 minutes each across a span of six to eight weeks—are not affordable for every family. The Live Like Jake Foundation provides scholarships for families in need. The foundation has provided 2,700 scholarships in 39 states. To finance these life-saving

grants, the organization hosts several fundraising events, including a 5K, a gala, and Watermelons for Water Safety—which raises awareness for drowning prevention by encouraging families to set up a watermelon stand and donate the proceeds to the Live Like Jake Foundation. With those funds and with a sponsorship from Premier Pediatrics of Palm Beach, Live Like Jake opened an indoor swim facility in Palm Beach Gardens. Morrison says most ISR training halts from October to April because of weather. But drownings can still take place in inclement conditions. The new pool can host lessons for up to 70 children each day, year-round—without stoppages due to the threat of lightning or chilly temperatures. The facility was dedicated in November of 2020—seven years to the month of Jake’s drowning. “Everything I do is bittersweet because I’d rather have Jake here,” Morrison says. “But I know what we do is important for the community and saves a lot of lives.” While the reach of the foundation has exceeded Morrison's expectations, it’s the impact made in Jake’s memory that means the most. “It’s a very special feeling to know that his name, his legacy will live on,” Morrison says.

Confronting

Cancer

The Cancer Alliance of Help and Hope offers the kind of financial support that keeps cancer patients from worrying themselves sick By Katie Abrams Even though Sandy Fischer was facing a diagnosis of throat cancer, she knew she was lucky. Not health-wise; but financially, she was able to afford her treatments and day-to-day costs. Many patients have to choose between paying their everyday living expenses or receiving medical treatments. Fischer eventually lost her figh . After her husband, Charlie, remarried Greta Jean Fischer, the couple founded the Cancer Alliance of Help and Hope (CAHH) in 2003 to relieve financial burdens for those whose lives have been turned upside down due to cancer. In Palm Beach County, CAHH is a cancer patient’s last resort. The organization takes care of everyday living expenses, including rent and mortgage payments, utilities, health and auto insurance, auto payments, and food. Patients who apply for assistance only need to meet three hurdles: They must live in Palm Beach County, they must be undergoing radiation or chemotherapy within the last three months, and they must be in financial need. Patients range from young children to senior citizens. CAHH provides services to 1,000 people a year, totaling more than 15,000 people over the past 13 years. The organization gives up to $5,000 per pa-

tient, plus gift cards for gas and grocieries. “We were able to purchase a mobile home for somebody,” Stanton Collemer, CAHH’s CEO says. Now, it’s home to a cancer patient and her two children, who were previously living in a car. Collemer says the experience is one of his highlights since he became CEO of CAHH five years ago. Since then, he has expanded the organization’s reach to the majority of Palm Beach County. CAHH provides more than just financial assistance. It has a patient navigator to help patients connect with other agencies for additional help like food stamps and doctor’s appointments. Additionally, the organization has started a new program called Champions for Life, which provides a basket filled with the essentials patients need to care for their pets. The organization holds several events through-

out the year to raise awareness and funds while celebrating its recipients. Supporters can take part in CAHH’s Pumpkin Patch in October, their No Shave November event, their Shop the Day Away Luncheon in February 2022, and their Dance the Night Away Gala in April 2022. In a typical year, these fundraisers bring in $1.5 million. One hundred percent of the profi s from each event goes back to supporting cancer patients. The nonprofi ’s future goals include increasing its outreach and providing scholarships to help patients’ children attend college. For Collemer, the payoff comes when CAHH can relieve a patient’s financial stress so they can focus on what is most important: their health and well-being. “Don’t take life for granted,” says Collemer. “You don’t realize how lucky you are.” (cahh.org)

By Parker Leipzig There are many clichés regarding first impressions—from “Don’t judge a book by its cover,” to “Dress to impress.” Which matters more: How you dress or who you are? Jervonte “Tae” Edmonds, founder of local nonprofit Suits for Seniors, says both are important. His organization is working to provide underserved students with the outfi s they need on the outside and the inspiration they need on the inside to go out into the world and achieve their goals. “When you look good, you feel good. And that all starts with a suit,” says Edmonds, who established the West Palm Beach nonprofit in 2015. Edmonds clearly recalls the confiden e he felt the first time he wore a suit. He wants to foster that same feeling in the students he serves. But,

he says, the suits his organization gives to high school seniors at the end of an 8- to 12-week leadership and mentoring program are just the “icing on the cake.” The program that Edmonds has built introduces students to new skill sets, helps them find their passions, and gives them the tools to develop successful life plans. Suits for Seniors raises funds at its Golf & Give event, bringing in $35,000 at the event in March. Edmonds says he puts those funds right back into the community, purchasing suits and paying for speakers to inspire student participants. Edmonds’ work is gaining national attention and some major star-power. His three-year partnership with Steve Harvey and the Steve and Marjorie Harvey Foundation has resulted in a generous grant to keep the good work going. Will George, a recent Palm Beach Gardens High School graduate and Suits for Seniors participant, created a mock business during the program. He says he now feels more prepared for life after high school. “Most people just complain about the system these days, but this program teaches you how to navigate through life and make a difference,” George says.

Suits for Seniors students are primarily enrolled in Title I schools. Low-income families make up at least 40 percent of the population at these institutions, according to the U.S. Department of Education. Edmonds says that seeing the triumphs of students from these struggling schools has shown him what it takes to change the status quo. “Building a village around our kids and making sure that we have mentors is a vital aspect to make sure our next generation succeeds,” Edmonds says. That village is expanding. Edmonds is now assisting locals who are experiencing homelessness or were previously incarcerated. Suits for Seniors offers these clients basic skills—from financial literacy to career opportunities to proper dress wear—and works to help them find jobs. At the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Suits for Seniors team developed an online curriculum. Edmonds plans to use that platform to expand his program nationwide. Suits for Seniors alumni have a 100 percent high school graduation rate—a statistic Edmonds would like to broaden as far and as wide as possible. “We’re really taking kids who would fall through the cracks and giving them the opportunity to be actual positive infl ences to the community,” he says.

COTTAGES OF HOPE

1000 Wishes Campaign to build an Enrichment Center on campus HISTORY OF KIDSANCTUARY CAMPUS KidSanctuary Campus was established in 2009 by local Philanthropist, Connie M. Frankino and today has four debt-free cottages on a secure 10-acre campus in West Palm Beach for local at-risk foster care children who receive 24-hour care in a family style home, until they are reunited with parents, adopted, or age out of the system. Today, more than ever, this campus is a vital resource to our community due to the Covid-19 outbreak and the increased need for the placement of foster care children. MISSION Our mission is to ensure that each child that lives on campus receives the benefits of a sense of belonging and permanency in a caring and positive environment that nurtures self-esteem and hope. WHAT’S HAPPENING NOW KidSanctuary Campus is reaching out to local community leaders for support to help us to complete and name the campus and build an Enrichment Center. The new Angel Crossing Enrichment Center will be a refuge where intervention programs, educational tutoring, case management, mentoring, social initiatives and family visitations will be scheduled for the children living in our cottages. IMPACT To date over 100 children have resided on campus with some of them staying as long as six years. The children are some of the most vulnerable in the foster care system and they come to our cottages with mental, physical and educational challenges. Many of them are behind in their academic performances and some are at least two years behind their current grade level. The new Enrichment Center will empower the children and give them the space and tools they need to enable them to be able to do their work at grade level. Our Community Partners will design and schedule programs that will

further enhance their social and emotional well being, giving them clear direction and vision for a brighter tomorrow. SUPPORT THE COMPLETION OF THE CAMPUS AND THE ANGEL CROSSING ENRICHMENT CENTER Proud to announce that we have broken ground to build the new Enrichment Center and are in the final Phase of construction in our Development Plan. We are happy to report that we received our first 1 million-dollar gift toward our 3.5 million dollar goal and have raised another $500K in pledges towards this 1000 Wishes Campaign. Our greatest wish is to have a matching 1 million dollar donor that will name the campus and help us complete the final Phase of our Development Plan. We also have other naming opportunities available at different donor levels in the Enrichment Center and throughout the campus. MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN THE LIVES OF LOCAL FOSTER CARE CHILDREN This is a time of great need in our nation and our foster care system is in crises. Please join our 1000 Wishes Campaign and become an Ambassador of KidSanctuary Campus and leave a legacy of hope for local foster care children.

FEEDING SOUTH FLORIDA IS SERVING UP NEW WAYS TO FIGHT FOOD INSECURITY—AND TRAINING THE NEXT GENERATION OF CULINARY UP-AND-COMERS WHILE THEY’RE AT IT By Kristen Desmond LeFevre

f hunger had a smell, it might be the aroma of an ovenbraised roast. At least that’s what’s wafting through a state-of-the-art industrial kitchen in the warehouse district just off I-95 in Boynton Beach, where Feeding South Florida has launched its innovative Culinary Training Program as an outside-the-box way to end hunger. Braised roast beef, potatoes au gratin, and roasted root vegetables are what’s on the menu—and the culinary program’s curriculum—today. The smell is a poignant reminder that lunchtime is still hours away. For many people, that feeling is nothing more than an inconvenience. But for the more than 154,000 people experiencing food insecurity in Palm Beach County, it raises the question of whether they’ll eat on any given day. Executive Vice President Sari Vatske says Feeding South Florida’s mission is to close that gap when a hot meal (or any meal) is hard to come by. In addition to Feeding South Florida’s vast warehouses and fleet of trucks, the organization has a new tool at its disposal: its gleaming new 5,000-square-foot kitchen at the organization’s Palm Beach County headquarters. It’s an industrial space that easily rivals the back-of-house at any top restaurant. But it’s more than that; Chrissy Benoit is the kitchen’s meal production manager, and she says the space can pull

double duty. “We have the culinary side for the program, which is more geared towards standard industrial restaurant equipment that you might see in any restaurant," she explains. “But we also have the production side—with equipment that you’d see in other segments of the hospitality industry like cruise ships, large hotels, or hospitals.” On the kitchen’s culinary side, chef-instructor Mike McDole is leading a handful of Culinary Training Program students through the finer points of the roast and potatoes. They gather around an oven, watching as he explains how to make meat into a masterpiece. Then they turn to today’s knifework exercise, dicing root vegetables into compact cubes. Later, they rotate to a pastry station, considering a redo of a pâte à choux that didn’t quite set up the way McDole would’ve liked when he taught the recipe during the previous week’s focus on desserts. “When something doesn’t turn out,” he says, “you’ve got to go back to the basics and try it again until you get it right.” Launched in April, the 12-week culinary program has local star-power behind it in the name of chef Lindsay Autry, the acclaimed chef-owner at West Palm Beach’s The Regional Kitchen. Autry has long been a 36

champion of Feeding South Florida’s mission. “I'd done a lot of awareness raising and fundraising around food insecurity and hunger relief efforts, but I always wanted to find a more on-the-ground effort where I could really get my hands dirty,” the James Beard “Best Chef: South” nominee and finalist on Bravo’s ninth season of Top Chef says. So when Feeding South Florida reached out to Autry about its plans to start a culinary program, she was immediately on board—writing and developing the course’s curriculum from scratch. “I went to Johnson and Wales University for culinary arts,” Autry says. “Feeding South Florida’s Culinary Training program obviously doesn’t cover everything I learned in four years there, but it’s like a distilled down version. It really covers a broad spectrum in a condensed amount of time.” For Autry, it’s about the food, but also about developing the next generation of culinary

Chefs Allen Susser and Lindsay Autry work in the Community Kitchen alongside chef Randy Fisher.

WHAT REALLY FULFILLS MY SOUL IS KNOWING THAT I MADE AN IMPACT ON SOMEONE'S LIFE.”

When class is over, she drives south to Doral where she starts a 5 p.m.to-close shift at Bath and Body Works. She says the experience is worth the hustle—even though the fancy kitchen intimidated her a bit at first. “I've only seen kitchens like that on TV, like on Master Chef,” she says of Feeding South Florida’s facilities. She imagined a course run by angry celebrity judges who would harp on her every misstep. “I spoke to my other classmates and they kind of felt the same way too,” she recalls. “We thought it was going to be strict, but they were actually so nice and so patient with us.” Students like Garcia are in the kitchen five days a week from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m., and every week has a different theme—from classes

professionals within our community. “What really fulfills my soul is knowing that I made an impact on someone's life,” she says. “I hope these students will find a purpose in their career and go out and succeed and be a part of our community so that our dining scene continues to grow.” The program is free of charge to people who have low or no income. Emily Garcia, 21, says she was drawn to the course to get her foot in the door of the culinary industry. “Ever since I was young, I would always help [my dad] in the kitchen, especially on the weekends,” she says. “It’s just my passion, my passion for cooking, wanting to learn, wanting to be a better chef.” Garcia had previously studied culinary arts at Miami Dade College, but she was forced to drop out when her financial aid ended. She’d been working a retail job in Doral to make and save the funds she’d need to get back into school and fulfill her dream of becoming a chef. When her sister told her about Feeding South Florida’s free program, she jumped at the chance. It’s an incredible opportunity—but for Garcia, it’s not without its sacrifi es. She wakes up at 6 a.m. each day to drive an hour from her home in Hialeah to attend classes at Feeding South Florida’s kitchen.

on meats, poultry, fish, sauces, food safety, knife skills, and more. Vatske says the program introduces students to the business end of the hospitality industry, as well. “We’re working with them on understanding menu planning, food ordering, and cost analysis—things that chefs who are hiring would see as very valuable in their kitchens.” Combined, they’re skills that Vatske hopes the students will use in commercial kitchens across South Florida upon graduation—when South Florida Food Bank will offer a helping hand with job placement. Autry says there has never been a stronger need for trained culinary

staff—as nearly all training programs in South Florida were shuttered during the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. “I think this was an opportunity for me to help our community and help those in need, but also to provide a learning experience in our community and help our hospitality industry grow,” she says. So how does teaching people to cook help fight hunger? Vatske says it all begins with access. Providing food helps families and solves an immediate problem, she explains—and the production side of the organization’s kitchen is key to that piece of the puzzle. Benoit says the kitchen’s state-of-the-art equipment allows Feeding South Florida to create nutritionally dense meals without relying on pre-packaged foods. But, she says, there’s also a zero-waste aspect that the kitchen offers. “When we get large donations from different farms, we can turn that 4,000 pounds or 8,000 pounds of produce right into meals without risking spoilage. Tomatoes? We’re making red sauce. Eggplant and zucchini? We’re chopping it up and roasting it to make ratatouille.” But Vatske says Feeding South Florida wants to solve food insecurity in ways that go beyond providing food—helping people break the cycle of poverty for good by increasing self-sufficiency through job training and workforce development programs. Benoit says that’s where the organization’s culinary program comes in. “When they go through this program, they’re not only highly employable, but they're going to get paid a much better hourly rate than somebody who is a station cook or who has less experience in a real industrial kitchen,” she says. “They’re going to be fully employed, and they won’t

be dealing with food insecurity anymore. They’ll have a great paycheck which they can use to provide themselves with their own groceries.” Back in the kitchen with Garcia and her fellow students, the second try on the pâte à choux is a success—and a sweet one at that. But the samples are limited: McDole whisks them away to the freezer with the other desserts the students made during pastry week. He’s saving them to be served at a very special occasion: their graduation ceremony. Benoit says watching the students celebrate their successes is sweet. “Cookbooks were exchanged, lots of hugs were given,” she says of the program-ending ceremony. For Garcia, graduation was a special moment to reflect on how far she’s come. “I’ve always wanted a culinary career, but I’ve always been afraid about moving forward with my dream because I never really had the training and the experience. But now I do. Now I feel more than able. It’s so nice to have that reassurance,” she says. “I feel like I wasn’t making that drive and working the night shift for nothing, you know?” «

FINAL SCENES

The Glades Generation By Kristen Desmond LeFevre

Sometimes, you’ve got to start with what you don’t know—or in the case of the Everglades Foundation’s Literacy Program, what most Floridian school children don’t know. Program Director Jennifer Diaz and her team set out to learn what Florida kids know about their home environment, and the results were alarming. “Most of the South Florida students we met did not know that their water comes from the Everglades,” Diaz says. “How are they going to protect what they don’t know or care about?” The answer: they can’t, or won’t. (Or both.) That's a problem, Diaz says, because the key to long-term sustainability and protection of the Everglades rests on the next generation understanding the vast ecological and economic value of Florida's famed river of grass. Enter the Everglades Literacy Program. Established in 2013, it puts science-backed resources and environmental experiences into the hands of school teachers. “The teachers are driving the cultural change. We need to teach students about their environment so they can care about it,” Diaz says. The program has caught on from kindergartens to high schools statewide: More than 3,700 teachers have taught the curriculum to 100,000 students. From professional development resources and lesson plans for teachers, to presentations, science nights, and field tri s that get students’ feet wet (literally, in some cases), the program is making a difference in how children view Florida’s fragile ecosystem. “It’s our greatest hope that our resources plus the hands-on work that the teachers are doing in their classrooms will create the next generation of South Florida conservation stewards,” Diaz says.
