Students From After-School Program Get Served Special Meal

The Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts hosted some special guests at its academy restaurant Tuesday.

The school served 60 students from Von Tobel Middle School, who are enrolled in the After-School All-Stars Program, which provides after-school programs in at-risk schools.

The meal was a full Thanksgiving feast, served by Las Vegas Mayor Carolyn Goodman, Las Vegas City Councilman Bob Beers and local TV anchors, including 8 News NOW's Paula Francis. 

"I think Thanksgiving is a time to give thanks and appreciate things and I think this is a great opportunity for the kids to feel very special, feel very valued, feel very privileged to be in a program like After-School All-Stars and also to be able to be served by such wonderful people here at Le Cordon Bleu. We can't thank them enough for this opportunity," executive director of After-School All-Stars Ranna Daud said.  

The meal was entirely donated by Le Cordon Bleu and prepared by its students. After the turkey and dressing and green beans, the students seemed to have some room left for an amazing dessert.
