Kneading bread and philosophy together: Support us on #COGivesDay

Tabea kneads dough with both hands

Philosophy bakes no bread. Philosopher Bertrand Russell said that. But a wise man we know once pointed out that no bread is baked without philosophy.

Okay, it wasn’t that gruesome! But it was the 11th year that Professor Terry Harrison has led a shark dissection at the Colorado Center for the Blind.

Three students inside a serving window, each serving from a different pan of food

The culmination of the Summer Program each year is of course the awarding of certificates and the talent show. Before that can happen, however, the masses must be fed. The summer students and their instructors draw on their collective learning in the kitchen over the summer and cook a meal for as many as 120 […]

Summer Jobs Wrapping Up
