Food For Our Future

I had the opportunity and pleasure to attend “Recipe For Change” last evening.  This is Food Share’s annual fund raising dinner. Food Share is a non-profit food co-op that has been in existence since 1985.

Armed only with a wine glass, a linen napkin and a fork I was unleashed into a cornucopia of delights from all corners of the earth.

What I did notice was the pride and joy that these artists took in their work. Happy to explain each dish to each and every person that asked.

The big and happy smiles on the faces of these chefs as each person took that bite and relished that dish were confirmation that these artisans really put a lot of love into their work.

There was also a silent auction of some really great items including bicycles, a stainless steel range, train trip with via and lots of neat smaller items as well. Unfortunately that no.3 blue sweater wasn’t getting the attention it might have at other times.
