This quarter we have 3 students joining us for our breakfast club internship, inspired by one of our students, Van, who wanted to have better breakfast options before school. Students interested in our internships go through an application and interview process with us before becoming interns, to clarify goals and working expectations. It is real work with a purpose for their peers.
As a first week warm up, Johnny, JJ and Kimberly collaborated, creating 3 different types of banana bread, served warm to students on Wednesday morning. Our second week had a "toast and jam" theme. Kimberly and Johnny made their own jam or spread and JJ focused on making their favorite shokupan, Japanese milk bread. We sense their pride in making these delicious breakfast options for students and look forward to the discoveries ahead.
