On Friday the 16th, OMSI's and OMSII's from Western-COMP-Northwest, went to their local Mega Foods Grocery store in Lebanon, OR and set up a cooking booth in the store. Going along with Region IV’s Community Service Project theme, “Feeding the Hungry,” they felt it important to educate the community on healthy food options in addition to supporting the local business. The cooking booth has been an ongoing project and is held at least once a month. They work directly with the store manager and use only in-store ingredients. Students are given the autonomy to decide on a meal and provide cooking demonstration and samples.
