Operation Frontline at the youth garden

Operation Frontline is a partnership program between the Capital Area Food Bank and Share Our Strength, two wonderful organizations working towards ending hunger. With the help of volunteer chefs and nutrition educators, Operation Frontline visits various sites throughout the DC community, teaching teaching nutrition and cooking skills. (for more info, see their website:

We were lucky to have two staff from the CAFB, Angela and Andrea, as well as a volunteer chef, Monica, come out to do such a presentation with our Growing Food...Growing Together families. They guided us through the creation of two yummy yogurt dips, one flavored with honey and cinnamon and another flavored with dill and carrot harvested from the garden. Chef Monica then prepared a corn and black eyed pea salad, getting everyone involved in the preparation along the way.

If you would like the recipes for any of these dishes, leave a comment here or email us at

Thanks again to Angela, Andrea, and Monica for coming out to share with our families!
