Quincy High culinary arts students serve hot meals to community groups

QUINCY – While the rest of the city’s residents were finishing their coffee Friday morning, Quincy High School’s culinary students were already halfway through cooking a full meal to feed the area’s homeless. 

The few culinary arts students who still attend in-person classes at the high school whipped up a lunch of chicken piccata, Brussels sprouts, salad with homemade vinaigrette, rice pilaf, rolls and blueberry pie for 50 guests of Father Bill’s on Friday morning. The meal was one of four the students will cook and serve to community groups this semester in partnership with Stop & Shop. 

“We haven’t been able to do as many functions under current circumstances, so it’s great to be able to do this,” Mark Kelly, a culinary instructor at the high school, said. “Bella (Delprete) is making 30 pounds of chicken – that’s a skill she wouldn’t be practicing otherwise.”
