I love it– thinking outside the box to find creative solutions to everyday problems.  

For Shelters of Saratoga (SOS), the creative approach has provided an opportunity to provide delicious, nutritious meals to the homeless in their emergency homeless shelter while also supporting local youth and inspiring them to become active helping the less fortunate  in their community . 

For several months, students in the BOCES culinary program have been preparing meals for guests at the SOS homeless shelter.   Now they’ve been selected to participate in a nationwide State Farm Neighborhood Assist contest to win $25,000.  Those funds will be used to purchase the ingredients needed for the preparation of meals each weekday for the 32 homeless adults residing at SOS. But they need your votes between April  4 to April 22 to be selected for the $25,000.
