On Wednesday May 3, 2017, Eastern Center for Arts and Technology (EASTERN) Culinary Arts students, Ashley Lademann, Abington High School junior; Lauren Lindsay, Hatboro-Horsham High School senior; Brytan Rachlin, Hatboro-Horsham High School senior and Lydia Emlet, Cheltenham High School junior, along with EASTERN’s Student Success Aide, Cori Sansalone, volunteered their time at the Upper Dublin Education Foundation (UDEF) Day at George’s Dreshertown Shop n’ Bag by serving beautifully prepared chocolate covered strawberries.
Shop n’ Bag donates a large portion of the day’s receipts to the Upper Dublin Education Foundation, a non-profit community organization whose exclusive educational and charitable purpose is to support programs for the benefit of students in the School District of Upper Dublin.
“This is a fun event for our students,” said Nicole McDonnell, EASTERN’s Culinary Arts Instructional Aide. “It is a great opportunity for them to demonstrate their culinary skills while representing EASTERN.”
EASTERN’s Culinary Arts program enables students to acquire a variety of skills including soup and sauce preparation, preparation of meat, fish and poultry entrees, baking, kitchen sanitation, purchasing and inventory controls.
