DELRAY BEACH, FL, UNITED STATES, April 13, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Community Classroom Project, a Delray Beach 501(c)(3) non-profit initiative to reduce school-related stress through innovative and experiential education, officially launched their new podcast, Heard Mentality. The first episode was an interactive fundraising dinner recorded live at The Wine Room Kitchen & Bar on Monday, April 11th. The podcast is a new program under the Community Classroom Project (CCP), a 501(c)3 non-profit initiative started by the team behind Space of Mind, an educational coaching, curriculum and services company based on Delray Beach. The first episode featured regular hosts, John Brewer, board member of Community Classroom Project (CCP) and founder of the Eat Local Supper Club, Ali Kaufman, founder and CEO of Space of Mind and Community Classroom Project and Chef Blake Malatesta, Executive Chef at The Wine Room and the Community Classroom Kitchen, a culinary program within the Community Classroom Project
"Our first Heard Mentality podcast episode was so much fun to record, and we had an incredible night celebrating the Community Classroom Kitchen with friends, family and community members,” said founder Ali Kaufman. “Everyone raved about Blake Malatesta's food, The Wine Room's service and the bread courses made by Billy Himmelrich at Old School Bakery. John and I are thrilled to launch the podcast to further the conversation about food, community and mental health in our restaurant and family kitchens."
The Heard Mentality Podcast is about creating a conversation around the importance of the food & culture in our homes, schools and communities and highlighting eating together as a way to better ourselves and our relationships. It will also continue to discuss CCP’s Community Classroom Kitchen (CCK) project, which uses kitchen skills to teach students both culinary lessons and lessons for life. The podcast’s title is a play on the popular kitchen affirmation, “Heard,” as the podcast is a conversation around the importance of balancing mental health and food in our culture. The evening was an interactive experience with dinner guests participating in their own table conversations as Chef Blake Malatesta served a 4-course dinner and John and Ali recorded the first episode.
