Holstein Housewares and ClipFresh, brands of Distrivalto USA, have partnered for the first in a series of cooking demonstrations at Lotus House Shelter, a local homeless shelter for women.
According to the company, the goal is to help empower women as they transition out of homelessness by providing them with knowledge and tips on how to cook easy recipes and preserve food, while on a budget.
Holstein Housewares and ClipFresh worked with local chef Maria Rubio of Casa Gioia, to prepare and share some of her recipes. In addition, Rubio provided advice on how to prepare quick meals and how to minimize waste by taking advantage of leftovers.
Rubio prepared both savory and sweet recipes using Holstein Housewares’ cake pop maker to make desserts. Last year, Holstein donated appliances to Lotus House for their new kitchen and to furnish housing for women and the demo provided an opportunity for the women to learn to use the appliances.
In addition, Rubio discussed how to make the most out of leftover ingredients by storing them in food storage containers such as the ClipFresh line.
“Our company culture has always been to promote community work and integrate our brands with different charitable causes. It is always a pleasure to work with Lotus House and we look forward to our next demos,” said Vanessa Valera Nolte, marketing director, Distrivalto.
