BHGHNY Veterans Day Cooking with Mary Lanning

On November 10th in honor of Veterans Day, BHGHNY Scholars and staff under the direction of Vice Chair of the Board of Trustees, Mary Lanning, prepared a meal for the local Fire Department in Ft. Greene, Brooklyn. Preparation for the meal lasted two hours as scholars and staff meticulously prepared Sister Lanning's decadent recipes. After prep time, scholars waited anxiously as the smell of meat loaf and sweet potato filled the room. Scholars then bundled up and walked with staff to FDNY engine house 210 to deliver the freshly prepared meal. In gratitude, the firefighters gave the scholars a tour of the facilities, allowing them to sit in the front seat of the fire engine and listen to stories of battling blazes throughout the city.
