Class of 2022 Holds Virtual Cooking Fundraiser

In late February, DHHS juniors and faculty advisors hosted a virtual cooking fundraiser to support the Class of 2022. Class advisor Jen Aguzzi said the class officers came up with the idea for a virtual cooking class after their big in-person fundraiser was cancelled last spring.

Approximately 20 families participated in the cooking class, hosted by Mr. Erik Becker. All participants made garlicky quinoa with roasted root vegetables. Aguzzi said families seemed to really enjoy the experience.

“People have said that the food was delicious and that they learned a lot about the health benefits of the ingredients,” she said. “They also learned some cooking tips and appreciated that ideas were given to modify the recipe to make it more versatile. They said that our amazing host, Erik Becker, was engaging and informative and that they felt included in the class. One participant shared, ‘Virtual Cooking was fantastic! What a great idea. I cook a lot and have never done a zoom cooking session. Please, do it again’!”

Aguzzi said the Class of 2022 is hoping to do a few more virtual fundraisers in the coming months. Individuals are welcome to donate to the Class at any time - there is an optional donation in Infinite Campus attached to each member of the Class of 2022 in the amounts of $10, $20, or $30.  If you would like to donate but do not have a student in the class, donations can be made by check. The check should be made out to “DHHS Class of 2022” with ‘donation’ in the memo, attention to Sue Evans.
