Brooklyn American Legion Post Open House

We are extending an invitation to everyone to join us as the Brooklyn American Legion Post #315 celebrates recent renovations with an Open House this Friday from 2:00 pm until??? Doors will open at 2:00, and Fresh is Best will be serving a FREE light buffet beginning at 5:00, compliments of the Post. There will be door prize drawings throughout the event, music, and special drink prices. This is the perfect opportunity to check out their banquet facility, and talk with the members about their activities in the community. Membership is open to anyone who has served, and their extended families–please come and check it out!

Online At Last!

We are full of energy and excitement today! After more than a year of fits and starts regarding a commercial kitchen, we are very happy to be partnering with the American Legion Wilber Bartlett Post #315 in Brooklyn, to provide the catering and educational services of Fresh is Best, along with showcasing the beautiful banquet facility at the Post. This historic brick building can accommodate 150 people comfortably, with plenty of free parking, a full bar, ADA accessible, stage and sound system and WiFi. You may use Fresh is Best, LLC, for your catering and event coordinating needs, or you may cater your own event in the spotless commercial kitchen. For rates and availability, please contact the American Legion directly between 2:00 and 8:00 pm at 517-592-6534. Interest in our educational events is growing by leaps and bounds! We had several great suggestions from attendees at the Women’s Expo, and are interested in what you would like to see offered. Some of the suggestions included: Cooking for Teens; College/Dorm Survival Cooking; Ladies’ Night Out; healthy baking; everyday gourmet (using ingredients I actually have); seasonal canning and preserving. Please add your ideas via a survey on the Fresh is Best website. For menus and full details of the online lunch service, see How It Works on the Fresh is Best weebsite:

Women’s Expo this Saturday!

By far, the largest public exposure event for Fresh is Best is the huge Women’s Expo sponsored by American 1 Credit Union. This is our third appearance and we are more than excited to share our new online lunch service menus for the first time, as well as feature our junior cooks demonstrating foods they have made at Cooking with Kids Club. Stop by and see us at Booth 8! March 9, 10:00-6:00, Parkside Middle School.
