During the Month of August 2011, we provided 800 breakfasts and 1000 lunches to youth 18 years and younger.THOC's nutritional Breakfast and Lunch Program was catered by PLUM Catering - Great Nutritional Menus. We started our mornings outside either in the screen tent, with tables and chairs or in front of THOC with banquet style tables and lawn chairs for the children.One of Our Program's goals was to make certain all children would eat nutritionallyduring their Summer break, therefore, THOC transported Breakfasts andLunches to other Youth Organizations.THOC was honoredwith the presence of outstanding teen organizations that started the process for the beginning of an organic garden.Another Youth Organinzation came in and placed spiral paths in the garden and covered the paths with mulch.The Youth worked and provided one of the best nutritional produce yielding and decorative gardens in the Chicago area.The Youth Directors for these Organizations are magnificent as they carry out a myriad of activities for their programs bridging areas so that there are no gaps duing this transitionaltime from youth to adults.
