    Congratulations to Christine Slyverstry, her story is inspiring. We are very proud of all your success and we know that your future is bright. Neverstop learning, growing and we know that all things work together for the good. WAY TO GO CHRISTINA, HIGH 5 TO YOU.

    MERIDEN — You wouldn’t know it by the way she cooks, but Christina Sylvestry is one picky eater. That habit started to change when she met her foster mother, Merva Sherwood, nearly four years ago.

    “I’ve always been a picky eater and never liked to try new food,” said 17-year-old Sylvestry, as she chopped up an onion. “When I first met my foster mother, she’s Jamaican, and she made all these different things. She just made shrimp curry one day and I decided to try it and I really loved it.” To read her full story click on the link: http://www.myrecordjournal.com/community/food/6927005-129/cooking-prompts-meriden-teen-to-try-new-things.html

My City Kitchen is not just a little cooking program, our students come from all walks of life. By participating in our cooking program we allow our students to express themselves through cooking, which builds their confidence, respect, self-esteem and independence.
