HCDC offers delicious home cooked meals for the children served in a family style environment. The cook, Jerrimae, has been feeding the children at HCDC for over 30 years. She provides a wide variety of healthy foods including lentils, fish, turkey, and chicken that are attractively displayed. Oftentimes, when sitting and eating together with their friends, the children will eat things that they normally wouldn’t try. The teachers also partake in family meal time and use the time to recall with the children the activities and learning that occurred in the morning as well as discuss the afternoon activities that are planned.
