The Harlingen High School Culinary Arts students were in the spirit of holiday cooking on Dec. 6.
The students used their cooking skills to bake goods for the Helping One Student to Succeed (HOSTS) mentors and teachers of the Harlingen Consolidated Independent School District.
The eight students that participated baked over 1,000 individual food items for the event. Like an actual catering business, the group also took charge in setting up, hosting and serving the guests. The event was hosted by Treasure Hills Elementary.
The HOSTS program is a nationally recognized, academically-structured mentoring program. HOSTS pairs students who may require individual attention with a volunteer mentor. The purpose of the program is for the student to achieve maximum reading ability. Volunteers serve to achieve this goal while making life-long impacts on students’ lives (and vice versa).
