• Jumpback Monday: Full Circle Kitchen

    Jumpback Monday!

    A few weeks ago we saw the first glimpse of the Santa Rosa Beach pantry when we first purchased the location - here is the pantry a few years in with some of the renovations completed - still was a long way from where we are today. We are so thankful for our completed pantry in Santa Rosa Beach that allows us to pack backpacks weekly, in addition to having cooking classes for students in the Emeril Lagasse Full Circle Kitchen!

  • Fall Frolic Event Recap

    A few weeks ago, we hosted our first annual "Fall Frolic" fundraiser.  It was a fun evening of food and drink pairings provided by Marrow Private Chefs, and Better Together Beverages, with music played by Kyle Lamonica. It was a wonderful evening to kick off fall enjoying delicious food and drinks, all while raising money to feed the kids.  Thank you to all who attended and for our wonderful vendors who made the evening so special!

  • Fall Cooking Classes in Full Swing!

    Cooking classes in the Emeril Lagasse Foundation Full Circle Kitchen have been up and running! Having this kitchen space means so much and we love hosting classes to teach students how to cook and prepare meals on their own. Thank you to our volunteers who took the time to help cook Cajun Shrimp Pasta with our students last week! Looks like it turned out delicious!

  • Calling All Volunteers!

    Calling All Volunteers! We need your help now that we are in full swing for the school year.  

    Each Thursday and Friday we deliver and distribute the backpacks of food at the schools and we need volunteers to assist in this process.  Do you live near a school? Are you an early bird and can take the van of backpacks to the schools early?! If so, we could use your help!

    We also are starting back up the kitchen classes in the Emeril Lagasse Foundation Full Circle Kitchen.  You do not need to be a chef to teach these students how to cook! We are just looking for enthusiastic volunteers who are able to follow a recipe and lead kids in cooking a recipe - we keep the meals pretty simple so that they may be able to replicate at home.  

    If you are interested or available, please contact us via email here: volunteer@fftfl.org.

    Thank you!
