In our second “Cook & Share” event on Jan. 12, 2010, Okemos Public Schools Superintendent Cheryl Kreger honored us by sharing her thoughts on the importance of diversity in K-12 education. She also shared a special recipe of hers with the guests. Niagara Foundation volunteers also showed the recipes of three delicious dishes. At the end, the guests enjoyed what has been cooked during the event.
