High school students prepare meals for the hungry in Santa Maria

Posted: Updated:

Santa Maria high schoolers put their culinary skills to work Thursday evening to help those who could use a hot meal. 

Students in the culinary arts program at Pioneer Valley High School made dinner for more than 150 guests at the Good Samaritan Shelter. Chicken tortilla soup, rolls, and salad were on the menu.

Pillows and blankets made by the school's clothing and fashion class were also handed out. The students made pillows last year, but this year they wanted to expand their efforts and make dinner, too.

"Our main thing is we just hope that this will inspire our community to want to do more to give back and be kind, especially during this time of year," said Jennifer Montanez, a culinary arts teacher at Pioneer Valley High School.

“I would like to help the shelter because my previous roommates lived in the shelter for a few years and they were great people. I really want to help out people who are having a tough time like my roommates did and to let them know that there are people out there that care," said 11th-grader Hannah Berg in a statement shared by the Santa Maria Joint Union High School District.
