The Sue Glovier Teaching Kitchen Celebration & Fundraiser was held on Monday, September 30 at the McDowell County Senior Center, Marion. Many former students, friends, and fellow Old Fort Extension Community Association members were in attendance.
Former students shared stories about learning in Ms. Glovier’s classroom including Vice Chairman Tony Brown, McDowell County Board of Commissioners. Vice Chairman Brown learned how to sew and tie a tie. It was not an easy task. Another student shared that her skirt hem was less than perfect causing the horizontal stripes to be slanted. All were in agreement that Ms. Glovier taught them skills that were needed in their life.
Ms. Glovier, the guest of honor, spoke about the importance of facility like the Foothills Food Hub for our community because adults and youth who have healthy diets with fresh, local ingredients can have productive work lives and learning habits, respectively. She also stressed that the more food has been processed the less nutritive value it has.
In its tradition of giving to our community, the Old Fort Extension Community Association donated $1,000 to the Sue Glovier Teaching Kitchen to kick off the fundraising campaign.
The Foothills Food Hub and the Sue Glovier Teaching Kitchen will continue a tradition of helping McDowell County support local agriculture and foods while increasing county residents’ skills in preparing and preserving local, healthy foods for their families. This creates a stronger, more vibrant community.
