Local 4-Hers help the homeless

Sharyn Cornelius of the East Valley Times in Palo Cedro, Calif., reports:

Members of local 4-H clubs have formed a mobile soup kitchen to provide a hot lunch for homeless people one day a month. On Monday, Jan. 17, a school holiday, three members of the Twin Palms and Cow Creek clubs—Dani Plake, Karah Harbuck, and Ruth Bailey–gathered in the Millville kitchen of Adrienne Hulst, Cow Creek 4-H community leader, to cook up a batch of chili and bake cornbread muffins. They will also hand out bottled water and canned peaches.

Hulst, who is also the goat project leader, had to help one of her young charges with a goat-birthing emergency that morning, but she left the young cooks under the capable supervision of her daughter Sierra, Twin Palms community leader Lynette Plake, and mothers Heather Dyer and Jennifer Collins.

As the girls poured cornbread batter into muffin cups and stirred the chili, they talked about what it meant to them to be able to help the homeless and what they had learned from the experience.
