Some highlights from our Fall 2016 programming: 

  • Fall Harvest Party
    October 29th during our regular Small Fry class time. There were games, crafts, and fun outdoor activities!

  • Thanksgiving Holiday Meal Preparation
    Small Fry students prepared a seasonal side dish and then each student took home a frozen turkey, ingredients for healthy sides and dessert with recipes to prepare as a family, in celebration of the holidays.

  • Christmas Holiday Party
    Another fun day of activities, crafts, dancing, and delicious things to eat! We even had an appearance from Santa . . . 

Small Fry serves the under-served minority communities in South Philadelphia.
Please consider volunteering or partnering with us! Thank you.
