Lentil Festival Chili Recovery and Repackage (CCE transportation provided)
The National Lentil Festival, which runs August 18-19th in Pullman, hosts the World's Largest Bowl of Lentil Chili; over 350 gallons of tasty and nutritious chili. Free samples of the chili are given out, but where does the leftover chili go? This year, chili that is leftover from the festivities will be stored and repackaged into servings that will be given out at the Community Action Center (CAC)'s food pantry.
Opportunity Description: Students will assist in recovering leftover chili from the World's Largest Bowl of Lentil Chili. Chili will be taken from the giant bowl and put into containers that are then transported to the Community Action Center's repack kitchen, where students will repackage the chili into family size servings. The chili will then be given out at the CAC's food pantry.
