Ukraine, January 2021

Lighthouse Center® Luch experienced a good vegetable harvest this year. As such, our team made a lot of jars of pickled cucumbers, tomatoes, and cabbage. Cooperating with a kindergarten and a school in the village of Luchka, we decided to help them and share our food products.

On the appointed day, the volunteers took the jars to the school and kindergarten. There were 52 jars and 2 additional buckets of tomatoes. The administration thanked us for our help and shared some good news. Their chefs often cooked compotes, jelly, and baked pies from the apples we delivered the last time. So, we in turn shared a few interesting apple recipes with them.

We were inspired by this collaboration, and pleased with the opportunity to share vegetables and fruits grown in our garden.
