Individuals with LARC's Lemarie Lifestyle Center recently traveled to Fresh Pickins on Kaliste Saloom Rd. Their mission was to find vegetables for their first-ever homemade vegetable soup.
"Not only was this a shopping trip, it was also a learning experience for most of the adults with developmental disabilities, which LARC serves," said Director of Community Relations Susan Nini. The individuals learned about different types of vegetables and how to know when they are ripe. They also purchased a variety of fresh fruits to taste.
