After almost a year of searching and sifting through resumes, we’re excited to welcome Chris Unitt aboard as our new Food Service Manager. Chris’s resume was exactly what we were looking for, and we’re grateful to the Lord for answering our prayers and leading her to join our ministry team.
“I’ve been around cooking all my life. My family was into big family gatherings. Every year we did a tamale dinner and we invited everybody we knew; it was this big one-day open house. It started before I was born - I came into cooking that way. It’s always been a passion of mine.” When Chris and her family bought a camp in Grass Valley in 2004, tamale dinners turned into pancake breakfasts and ice cream socials. After ten years, they sold the camp and, by then, Chris was well immersed in the commercial kitchen. Since then, Chris has volunteered extensively with Hospitality House and worked for Summer Thyme’s Bakery and Deli, Valentina’s Organic Bistro and Bakery, and most recently, Caroline’s Coffee Roasters. “I was ready for a change. The Lord was tugging at my heart to be doing more mentorship and training.”
We’re thankful to Larissa for capably filling this role this year and for her flexibility and servant-heart, which gave us the time to do a thorough search process. Moving forward, Larissa plans to work with High Sierra Outdoor Institute and apply for graduate schools to pursue a Master’s degree in Education.
