The student catered meal was a total success, with a large turnout of 42 people, including quite a few guests.
The food was great (menu below) and the event ran smoothly. It was such a fun night! I attended the dinner as a guest, and was able to see it from a completely new perspective. Many Living Light employees attended, along with some family members of the students. Friends and family are always invited to the catered meal, but some of our students travel from far away, and their friends and family aren’t able to make the trip. It's always exciting to have new visitors for the event.
Student Dawn Bitterman had her son and daughter-in-law as guests. They'll be in town for the weekend, visiting from Martinez, California in order to support "Mom". They’re actually the reason why Dawn is here at school, since her son got into raw foods and inspired the whole family. Dawn says that once she tasted raw chocolate mousse she was hooked, and now she's becoming a raw chef!
