MESSAGE FROM KEITH YAMAGUCHI, NISEI LUNCH PROGRAM CHAIR
For those of us that are familiar with this popular program, we all knew that this day would eventually happen. Terry Takeuchi has been working hard to open his own restaurant, and it appears that the time has come and his dream of opening that restaurant is close at hand.
Terry has been such an important part of our Nisei Lunch team and without his skills as a chef and his ability to coordinate the activity of our volunteers in the kitchen -- well, it goes without saying that those skills will be missed. The success of the Nisei Lunch program would not have happened if it wasn’t for Terry Takeuchi and his leadership.
As we move forward, a new chapter begins in the Nisei Lunch program. We are pleased to announce that Keiro NW Catering will provide our lunch meals for April and May. We are very excited about the new partnership and want to thank Keiro NW Catering and in particular, Ron Youmans, Catering Manager for agreeing to participate in the Nisei Lunch program. The meals provided by Keiro NW Catering will have a Japanese theme to them. Here is the menu for April.
Steamed White Rice
Osuimono w/Shitake & Green Onion
