Pizza saving lives

As Touchstones provides strategies for making healthy choices in a social model environment, we engage residents and staff in all aspects of family life. Among other life skills, residents and staff work together planning and preparing meals. When Dominoes Pizza donated pizza dough to Touchstones, staff and residents set out to build their own pizza although no one had any experience with pizza other than ordering it and having it delivered. Residents and staff planned, shopped and baked. The final product, as one 16-year old male commented, “this tastes just as good as if it had come out of a box."
