Week 2 Day 4: Herb Day and Swimming!

Today began in the garden with Herb Day! We took a tour of the herb garden and not only learned what all the herbs were, but got to taste them, too! We also chose a few herb to put into a planter to take home to nurture and help grow. We also made herb butter and herb scrubs. We learned about all the numerous ways herbs can be used and enjoyed all the delicious flavors as well.

We then headed up to the food lab to cook until lunch time. We learned all about Campus Kitchens, which is an organization at SLU run out of one of our dorm buildings, Reinert Hall. Campus Kitchens provides food for those in the St. Louis Midtown area who cannot provide it for themselves. We got to cook and package the meals for these people! We made chicken pita wraps, lemon blueberry bread, and also packaged up carrots and humus for them Not only was it fun to cook the meals, but it’s great to know that we are making a difference in someone else’s life who may not be eating anything that day except for the food that we are providing them with.

After cooking, we ate lunch and headed over to Reinert Hall to take a tour of Campus Kitchens! We learned even more about the organization and got to see where all the food is usually made for those in the area. After the tour, we headed to the pool to end a great day with some swimming!
