Public·7 students

We also spoke how satisfying it is to create personal connection with people and sharing our knowledge and skills with a broader community.

We made sweet potato gnocchi, and while the dough was resting we spoke about what food insecurity means and what food deserts are, how they are created and what the possible solutions might be.
