American Scientist and Founding Father
After some much needed vacation followed by a flurry of website updates, new projects, and events, Big Spoon Kitchen is happy to announce that our weekly menu will be returning for orders on August 16th!
We'd like to thank you all for your continued support during this period of research and development! While we were taking time off from the menu, we've done a few things you may have noticed or heard about:
Our website: As many of you will notice, we've done a complete revamping of our website with many new added features for your convenience. Visitors will now be able to create a profile to save their information for faster and easier checkouts, have size options within the product pages, a "pick-up location" selection during checkout, the ability to purchase and send gift cards on our website, and some others on the way!
Kids in the Kitchen: As some of you may have heard (or even knew a participant), Big Spoon Kitchen successfully ran a pilot program of our "Kids in the Kitchen" Summer Cooking Camp in association with St. Lawrence Health System and Gardenshare. We ran two 8 hour sessions for local 6th, 7th, and 8th graders who learned basic cookings skills, prepared their own snack and lunch, and made a take home dinner for their families. We've received some good feedback and are already formulating some shorter format kids cooking classes for the future.
Farm to School: We'd also like to announce that we have formally partnered with Cornell Cooperative Extension on a new project we will be undertaking beginning very soon - we will be processing vegetables from local farms for 18 local schools in the area, continuing our mission of supporting not only local business, but local food and farming practices as well! Soon enough local school children will be eating vegetables during lunch that have been grown right in here in the North Country!
