Cookin’ for the community
Yesterday, a few of us kitchen-folk went on a community service outing. 

Molly, Morgan and myself donated several hours with the East Bay chapter of Food Not Bombs. If you're not familiar with this organization, they focus on providing food to those in need—mainly the homeless.

It was a great experience and I was amazed at the generosity of these people. The group cooks and serves food everyday!!! An extremely resourceful organization, they get food donations from local grocers and farmer’s markets that they then cook into a nutritious and filling meal. We sifted through huge bags of lettuce and spinach, cut a ton of potatoes and cooked an enormous pot of black-eyed peas. 

Once the food was prepared, they took it to People’s Park in Berkeley and served it to those in need. This may be the only food that some folks have all day and it felt really great to help out.
