D22 Class Represents at Community Servings

“For the second time, members of the D22 class prepared and packaged medically-crafted meals at Community Servings, for patients in the Greater Boston area. With direction from Community Servings’ staff, we put our culinary skills to good use by chopping fruits to make scrumptious peach muffins, among other food-related tasks. Meals created here will be distributed to Bostonian individuals and families in need.” – James Cruz (D22)
