The Family Foundation School extends a warm welcome to our new head chef, Pablo.
He’s joining our family as the head of the kitchen and will be helping us cook up some great new eats and some of our old favorites as the winter comes. Pablo was looking for a job online, and saw that there was an opening at the Family Foundation School. “What I noticed,” he says “was that it was listed as a place for at-risk teens, and I was one myself.” Pablo has experience being a part of 12-step community, which drew him to our school.
“This job combines my two greatest passion: the 12 steps and cooking,” Pablo told me. He hopes to create more of our meals from scratch and use less processed food in his cooking, something that the students are glad to hear, as many of us are concerned about the health and purity of our bodies. Pablo was originally born in Puerto Rico, but grew up most of his life in Yonkers, New York. However, when his son was born, he moved to Orange County in order to raise him in a more rural area and lived there for fifteen years. Pablo has already made a great impression this weekend with his heavenly peach cobbler and scrumptious apple pie, and we all look forward to creating many more delicious meals with him in the kitchen!
