Riverview student cook dinner for veterans

Swift Transportation Charities held its Veteran’s Dinner on Sunday, Dec. 15. 

This year it was held at the UAW in Flat Rock. The food was provided by Swift Transportation Charities and prepared by Riverview Community High School Culinary students and Culinary Club members. 

This year there were approximately 400 local veterans and their families served. 

They were served a full holiday style dinner including, ham, turkey, macaroni and cheese, dressing, sweet potatoes, mashed potatoes, green bean casserole and homemade rolls. 

The dinner was prepared in a three-day cooking session on Friday, Saturday and Sunday by several young culinarians from the culinary class and club at Riverview. 

With the leftover food, the culinary class made ham and bean soup, ham macaroni and cheese casserole and mushroom soup, which will be donated to Motor City Mitten Mission.

Swift Transportations Charities also donated funds for the culinary club travel to Orlando FL to cook with celebrity chefs.
