Debbie Peters, Cook, has worked in the kitchen since 2005. With no prior experience in the food industry, Debbie started out as a general helper, taking every opportunity to learn how to cook large quantities and manage all aspects of the kitchen as she rose to her current position. She loves working side by side with the kitchen volunteers and can’t imagine how we could manage without them. When she’s not busy in our kitchen, Debbie can be found working in her garden or hanging out with her two granddaughters, Kaley and Riely.
Brian Harvey, Cook.
