Pasta Kitchen

Assist us Wednesday when we offer a hot bowl of pasta to the many needy residents (often homeless) and passers-through in Observatory. But more than providing a meal it’s about creating connections with the people on the streets and developing a long-term strategy to help elevate their lives. Please note that this activity is offered to Pre-Intermediate or higher level students, as you will need to be able to interact and communicate effectively with the local residents.
