Busia Queen 2018 Jacky Schmidt

I have 3 kids, 3 grandkids. I started my own catering company 4 years ago called Busia’s catering where I am known for handmade pierogis, kapusta, and golumpki. I love everything about the Polish community and that’s why I volunteer at Eastern Hall. I cook lunches Monday through Thursday in Eastern Ave Hall's kitchen and I only charge $5 to cover the cost. I love teaching my children and grandchildren about the Polish culture and the food just like my mom and Busia did.
