"Even real food. I had We grew up in a very multigenerational families so my grandparents a really super close to all four and my grandmother And we spent a lot of time in the summers everybody's lived together One of my grandmothers my will call her. My russian grandmother nellie Whom i eldest is named for now. She was a very intuitive cook. And if you asked her what ingredients were as she would say a pinch a touch. You know this and that you know sort of floundered around on some kitchen table making her thing. So i knew what home cooked food looked like. We would have to go out to get it to one of our grannies and this was in manhattan where your family lived on the west side. We come across a lot of recipes. That are like oh pinch of this and like one teacup of this. So that's you know that's part of what we're doing here to shoot society trying to capture those beautiful things i. I wish i knew how my grandmother nellie made them. I wish i knew her ingredients. But i don't think she knew you know it's like okay. Let me let me improvise. I mean she's the perfect chef for today. When we think about full utilization of ingredients because nothing went in the garbage can imagine not so the sylvia's center the nonprofit you started in sylvia's memory. Children learn to cook. What have you learned from watching children. Cook show it's a the kitchen is really a magical place. I always when i talked to parents and adults about cooking with kids in the kitchen. I always quote miss frizzle school bus and you know what her matas get messy. Make mistakes and that to me should be the motto of being in the kitchen with kids. It's not about control if you're squeamish about a mess don't go in. You're you know if you if you can't stand failure. Don't go in. I've been this basic rules. You gotta watch you know how you handle a knife you say from the stove you want to establish that. It's got to be a safe environment. But within that context it's it's supplies for for final and learning and it's it's where you fall in love with the ingredients and flavors and tastes and the most amazing thing that happens afterwards is and we do this at the sylvia's center maybe not a during covid But before and after that we sit together as a community and we eat. And i will say one of the maybe. It's an indirect legacy of my mother's not really caring about the food itself. She really cared about the table. And the emphasis was on oncoming together and being together and the conversations and the multigenerational give and take that happened food. Okay that was a detail. She just wasn't into which is fine. But the tables looked gorgeous. My mother who died about three years ago probably could use a different dish three times if for every single meal for the rest of eternity and never use the same twice. She had a lot of stuff and loved setting a beautiful table. So you know everybody has a little different aesthetic. When it comes to it but i i have meandered love just picturing her cover amazing amazing amazing sets upon sets upon sets of everything before before we get to the table. I was you know thinking about another part of your story that that struck me as you were grieving. You said that the greenmarket was a place of incredible comfort for you. Why do you think that that was and what was it about the greenmarket and it was the fall so august september october which is really the most beautiful peak season. You've got just fall. Vegetables collided with end of summer. And of course tomatoes and peppers and people fight for their harvests and things happen and mother. Nature comes in upset. Soul your plans for the growing season. Or it's really this microcosm of of what we have is in our human lives. There's something life-affirming abouts saying how nature works and that seasons turn one from the other and being there was also a place to escape out of a community or people knew me and just look at me with sad eyes and stuff like that and the vegetables didn't do that and and i could engage with the farmers and now is just a a refuge. That was strangely comforting. You enter story with a very powerful line. Before i ask you one last question i want to replay that part of the story one more time cover minds me of that night many many years ago when i could have said no it's bedtime and instead i chose to say us thank you today. We're living in a time where the boundaries between family life and work have never been so blurred and parents are constantly having to make a choice like you did that night. What advice would you give them as they navigate these hard decisions. Sa- a great question and really. Nobody ever wants advice on parenting. So i don't offer it now. I think there was the head of the school. My children went miranshah. Rosca at the hessel. School used to say that choosing a school was a values clarification tests and the phrase has really resonated with me. I think these decisions we make day in day out. There's times you kids push your buttons and you just ready to lock them in a closet and throw away the key and you know you just can't control your emotions and that's that's very real especially i think when you were on top of them and his all the uncertainty and said very stressful time to be doing anything no less parenting but when you can get ahead of your emotions if you can you know you have to sometimes just count to ten and run that value clarifications tests. I'm apparent because you know and just knowing that not only that life is fragile. You can't live with that every moment but but just knowing that they're going to grow up and they're going to be out of the house and it's gonna be gone so these are moments that we never get back so sometimes just have to.

"At me and thinking so course i said yes and off to the kitchen we go and all the ingredients come out and with expert and eager little hands. They get started and sam's peeling the potatoes and they're taking turns put into the cuisinart. Great in the onion and sylvia's cracking the eggs on the bowl and mixing in the flower and the seasoning. And she's starting to stir and it's exactly what you expect for cooking with a three year old there are eggshells. The batter and the flower is everywhere. Especially all over her pajamas and she's just chattering away and surreptitiously dropping little treats on the floor for the cat. It was great and lo and behold lot closer fried outcomes the applesauce and the feast began so with full bellies and a sink filled with dirty dishes. They finally march off to bed really self-satisfied and just reeking of cooking oil and it was a perfect night so a few short years later about four years later the unexpected happened. We were upstate. A at our neighborhood celebration. August night when sylvia starts running into a complaining of a really really terrible headache. I took a ride home and my best friend. Who's a doctor came along with us. We got home. She collapsed and lost consciousness. We raised to the hospital and they told us. It was an aneurysm that there was nothing that we could do. She was put on life support and two days later. My beautiful sweet daughter was gone so there really are no words. It's nothing you could describe. I wish that the earth could open me up and just swallow me whole. But i had three young children who needed a strong a mother and father to study their world so i got up and got out of bed every single morning. When i did my shopping. I would sometimes go down to the greene market. And what i discovered was when i was there sort of it was able to escape my pain somehow being with the vegetables and the agriculture and all that life was very healing. Now that summer. I had been taken salmon. Sylvia with me every week to a putnam county farm to pick up. Arcia say share. And i'll never forget. There's one week were there. And they are playing in the dirt with the bugs and the rocks at my feet. And i'm talking to farmers odd and i tell him you know. I really wish i could have a farm of my own and sam looks up at me. And he says big dreams so a few months after sylvia's death. I woke up one morning. And i knew what i had to do. It turned to my husband. And i said we are going to buy a farm. And we're going to create a legacy for sylvia sylvia who really more than anything else wanted to become a helpful human and had. She had the chance she would have done. Something really remarkable so we bought. We started a company and we called the big dreams and we bought land started our farm which was home to the sylvia center where kids come and they learn about healthy eating and good food because we teach them how to cook. Now kids learn by doing so. When i'm there and i'm watching these kids and they are cracking eggs and laughing and chopping vegetables and cooking together and eating together. You know what i feel. Sylvia's spirit and the joy and everything wonderful and good about the world that she really embodied and that year. We started a lot festival as a fundraiser. For the sylvia's center. Now yes. it's a little odd of fried food festival for a healthy eating program but is really a great event and it's eleven years later. Hundreds of people come celebrity judges music lots and lots of lot goes and it is a night of joy of celebration of community and it's the best night of the year. It reminds me of that night many many years ago when i could have said no it's bedtime and instead i chose to say yes. Thank you you look tired.

Business by crain's new york some stories. You just don't wanna stop in the middle and this is one of those stories so today we are going to break with the schmaltzy podcast tradition and listened to loses entire story before she joins us in the studio. Here's liz from the schmaltzy stage at the new york city wine and food festival where she shared a very personal story about loss living in the moment and resilience so about twenty years ago my catering business was really starting to take off and it was such an exciting time. We had just moved into a great facility in hudson square. And we're getting to expand within that footprint. We had signed the contract with ian schrager and we were operating the hudson hotels so we were really cool. And every day was a combination of meet with customers and clients and internal planning and of course events and all. This was really great. But for the fact that i also had for young children at home under the age of ten and my husband constantly worked laid and when he was working late he was traveling so as you can imagine it was really hard to find balance in my life trying to juggle work and home so i realized really early on that the key to my success both privately personally and professionally was secretive schedule and a routine and stick to it now. I knew about planning. Because i was from the event world where everything has a plan and a timeline and you stick to it no deviation i had waited a really long time to become apparent and i did not want to be an absentee mom. So most days. I took my children to school race downtown. Flew home at the end of the day in order to join them right at dinner time and then we would do baths and story time. And that was the routine heels off sweatpants on and after they went to sleep i would of course get back online and get back to work and try to finish up. Whatever i'd started that day and sometimes they even out to parties so one winter nights started out like most accept this night. I had a really big presentation to finish a deadline for client. So i got home with the baths and the ready for story time. I'm kind of thinking. Let's get this done. So i can get back to work and nelson katie. My nine and eight year old daughters were in their room. They were playing and chatting and wait information. Finish up with the little too and get to them. Sam who was eight and sylvia. San was five and sylvia. The baby three had picked out. One of their favorite books called a story felina in the book. Lena's grandma shares a family fable about apple strudel. So how can i describe what happens next. You know the book if you give a mouse a cookie thing well talking about apple strudel. We started thinking about apples. And talking about apple's of course led directly to apple sauce and the mention of applesauce little sylvia's green eyes lit up and she looks at me and she says why. Don't we make lockers right now and we can eat them with applesauce. Okay so let me tell you about lakas in my family. It's not a special event food. It is not just for. It's kind of like peanut butter and jelly. But it's not because peanut butter and jelly is really quick. Lakas is all the ingredients and it makes a mess and you need a lot of time and then you gotta clean up. And i'm thinking. I gotta get back to work. And she's looking at me like and then sam starts in Grew up to become his high school debating team champion so he tells me they're hungry. Says mom will do it really quickly. And we're going to help clean up and you know what tomorrow night. We will skip stories and we will go a bit early and you know what were starving and sylvia's just egging him on and looking.

"The city addressing additional barriers for homeless students. So I know one thing that we really advocated or was that students, she likes homelessness. That CPS GIVES THEM COMPUTING DEVICES? and. Mobile hotspots. for Wifi and so CPS date agree to give every family in the. PROGRAM COMPUTING DEVICES AND HOT SPOTS but I think at the beginning of distance learning that was a huge struggle i. think another way that CPS is you know providing some support and you know we continue to advocate needs to provide a lot of support around is just training for how for parents for how to use the CPS portal I'm you know there's a lot of families were you know maybe don't have as much experience with technology and so making sure that there is kind of a very clear place I know CPS has. Hotline for Tech Support to making sure that hotline is fully staffed is really important and that is really advertised while I'm I. Think one thing we really saw at the beginning of distance learning was not every family he's experiencing homelessness has data on their cell phone they might have a device but not in staten. So making sure that kind of families are given information in multiple ways and not just you know Robo phone calls but that it's on social. Media that it's on email hard copy mail. It's calls kind of all these ways to make sure all those resources and connection points like access to food and who to call it. They have a question and where to go they issue with logging in that families have kind of multiple as to get that information is really good. You know Nicole or Amanda the Sylvia's center recently converted several rooms into classrooms for homeless students and we know that you're saying that. Right now, you're in a larger room split up with different students, different ages how you doing that. This is Amanda. What we did is we converted some of the family rooms on our fourth floor into classrooms. So they're not big by any means, but every single child has their own desk, their own backpack there on headphones on their own school supplies in. This is all possible because of the staff at Court Language Arts Elementary School, and then the community members that have. Out Our Amazon wishlist that have been calling asking what they can donate bay made it possible for every single one of our kids to have the supplies in then was even more awesome as they're making it possible for me to have actress applies for when new families moved in I can get them set up with school. So they start within the next day. Hopefully, I want to bring in another voice into this conversation April Harris who is a CPS parent her daughter Madison starts the Ninth Grade Today and her son Gregory starts the sixth grade on Friday April. Welcome to reset. Yes thank you so much for having me day. Thank you. How are you feeling? How are you guys feeling and doing on the first day of school. A little bit overwhelms As you know, both my kids are in CPS schools right now does high school that my daughter is in.

"Hi I'm Kimberley. Going and this is reset. Nearly four, hundred thousand students started school today in Chicago, and for now, they're doing it remotely, and while that may be the safest option during the pandemic remote learning may create extra barriers for the district's homeless population, an estimated sixteen, thousand, five hundred students who rely on schools for Internet, access and other resources. So how a CPS reaching these students and what will the long term impact beyond their education? Eliza Phillips, is an education attorney at the Chicago Coalition for the homeless and she joins us now on the Lai elissa welcome to reset. That could be here. Thank you, and also with us is Nicole branch she's a case manager at the Sylvia Center, that's a homeless shelter in Uptown Nicole welcome to the program low. List I'll start with you give us a sense of how many students are experiencing homelessness in Chicago and how the numbers have changed right now, there is over sixteen thousand students in CPS who are identified as experiencing homelessness. And always remember that these are students who are identified. So we know that this is most likely an undercount as there are you know students who do not get identified and we've seen these numbers fluctuate obviously with enrollment in cps going down also, we have seen the number going down, but we also know that that is. An issue that has to do with identifying homeless students properly and making sure that there is enough capacity for students and temporary living situation the liaison to identify students and other staff in the school to have the training to be able to identify and connects students to the. Program listen. Do you think that that means that there are a lot of students who will not come out.
