Penelope and Violet started in our preschool last fall. Everything was great — until lunch. And then snack time. And breakfast the next day. Both wouldn’t eat any of the food our chefs made.
When Tyrone Reese, our assistant director of food resources, heard about them, he didn’t skip a beat. That day he contacted their parents and found out what they eat at home. He got recipes for their favorites and made them. When the sisters saw familiar foods, they started eating again. And before long, both trusted Goodman chefs to make food they like and also started trying new foods.
Now the pair scarf down everything chef Tyrone serves up. In fact, the sisters’ parents have asked Tyrone for a few of his recipes — so they can make some of the girls’ favorite Goodman meals.
At Goodman, we always choose kindness, and given that you're here right now, we suspect you do too. We're collecting stories of goodness.
