Thanks to Keene State College Dietetic Intern, Carissa Brewton, we will be hosting local food taste tests at Retreat Farm on select Fridays this summer. Taste tests will happen in conjunction with the Free Summer Meals program and will include an educational component, such as books, games, or art projects. Each taste test will feature a different local food, some of which will come straight form Retreat Farm's on-site garden.
Carissa is in the last few months of her dietetic internship at Keene State College and is excited to become a Registered Dietitian very soon! A Pennsylvania native, she is a graduate of Penn State University, where she developed her interests in food systems, sustainability, and agriculture in addition to her studies in nutritional science. She enjoys cooking, reading, hiking, taking care of her potted plants, and traveling to new places.
We are excited to have Carissa on our team this summer!
