Good afternoon, everybody – today we served 33 families consisting of 64 adults, 42 children and 11 seniors, for a total of 118 people.
Sara Sellitti visited us from the Springhurst garden, carrying extra herbs and produce from the garden. She’ll keep us in mind throughout the summer in case they have a surplus of herbs, vegetables or fruits. I’ve visited the garden, which is in the inner courtyard of the school. It’s magnificent, and the children learn about healthy eating and the value of growing your own food.
We also had a visit from Liz Loglisci of the Unitarian Society. She also brought some vegetables and herbs from the Unitarian garden. We’re very happy to accept extra produce from anybody’s garden, in addition to the beautiful produce we receive each week from the Roots & Wings garden right here at South Church. Marc harvests early every Wednesday morning for us. This morning he brought the most beautiful kale, cucumbers, tomatoes and herbs..Our clients are lucky to have such bounty.
Then later Carol Seischab walked in with three boxes of food from Zion Episcopal and Dobbs Ferry Lutheran. We count on our local churches and temples to collect food for us throughout the year without even being asked. Thanks to all of you for keeping us going.
Don’t forget about South Church’s attic sale on Saturday, September 7 from 9:00 to 3:00. They’ll start collecting things in Fellowship Hall beginning August first. I hope everybody on this list can donate something. I will too.
