Garfield High School’s 19th Annual Thanksgiving Luncheon

This afternoon, our office attended Garfield High School’s 19th Annual Thanksgiving Luncheon at the Prado. The students from Garfield High School’s Culinary and Hospitality program along with chefs from The Prado and Cohn Restaurant Group put together an incredible buffet-style Thanksgiving spread for nearly 400 people.  The menu consisted of fresh salads, garlic mashed potatoes, chorizo stuffing, roasted turkey and too many desserts to fit on your plate.

To accompany the delicious food, Garfield High students shared inspirational stories about how they persevered through hard times and how the teachers and counselors at Garfield brought hope and encouragement back into their lives. Garfield High School is a continuation school where at-risk youth are provided with comprehensive services through the use of exemplary instructional strategies, flexible scheduling, and guidance and counseling services.

We have been proudly supporting and attending the Garfield Luncheon since its inception and invite people to learn more about the school by clicking here.

We hope everyone has a very Happy Thanksgiving!
