Eustis High School students volunteer again

Two of my favorite things- students and food service!  Kudos again to Eustis High School students and thanks to Chef Jeff for sharing this great story.  And from what I understand this is a commitment the students have all year round- they’re very active in the Central Florida community providing their skills to community events.  Keep up the good work- volunteering is such a great thing!
