Today SFC Susa had the privileged to do a cooking demo and teach young soldiers how to save some money in grocery shopping who currently resides in the barracks at Fort Detrick, MD. He was able to incorporate basic cooking techniques, meal prep, sanitation, nutritional cooking, as well as time management. Most importantly how to have fresh meals that they can enjoy at a low cost. The soldiers had a great time and was very hands on with all the prep and cooking. More photos from today’s class to follow. #trainingiseverything #barrackscooking #giveback #betteropportunitiesforsinglesoldiers #fortdetrickmaryland #jccoe #usacatteam #cookingonabudget #makingmemories #bethechange #soldiersfirst
