Sem Ridge French Honor Society Members Serve As Quantum House ‘Chefs For A Day’

On April 2, members of the Seminole Ridge High School French National Honor Society were “Chefs for a Day” at the Quantum House in West Palm Beach for the second time this year. Before dinner, the students interacted with Quantum House families, some of whom come from as far away as Poland. Students then prepared dinner for a group of 30 — chicken (poulet avec sauce béchamel), potatoes (pommes de terre au gratin), salade verte, avec des baguettes, and lots of delicious éclairs and other French pastries. Quantum House is a caring and supportive home that lessens the burden for families whose children are receiving treatment in Palm Beach County for a serious medical condition.
