Read a Recipe for Literacy/Palm Beach County Cooperative Extension Service Starts at Melaleuca Elementary School in West Palm Beach

img_1587We’re off to a great beginning with a new partner at a new school in West Palm Beach. Ada Medina_Solorzano from PBC Cooperative Extension PBC/UF  will be running the show each week for the lucky students at Melaleuca Elementary School, West Palm Beach.   Her first session was a timely one.   After providing the children with the necessary materials for the program (RRL hats, notebooks, and pencils), she got them thinking (and preparing) a hurricane salad.   So what is a hurricane salad?   One that can be prepared by the children at home when a hurricane threatens and they don’t have access to a store.   Out of the cupboard come the handy cans of beans and corn, a dressing is prepared with vinegar and oil, perhaps some dried herbs.   Voila, dinner is served!
