As we approach the holiday season, it's important to remember that some of our neighbors don't have access to the warm shelter or feasts that others are used to. But there ways and opportunities to bring someone else the comfort we feel when sitting down to a warm meal this season. The easiest option: If you happen to buy extra ingredients, bring a portion to the food shelf! If you don't have food to donate, there are opportunities to offer other resources as well. Pack CSA boxes, deliver meals, or provide monthly donations to a local housing organization. When we share our spread, we spread some joy.
