Fall Potluck Supper and Project Bread Presentation at St. Mary’s – Tuesday, October 7, 2
SAINT MARY’S EPISCOPAL CHURCH
YOU ARE INVITED TO A POTLUCK SUPPER
Tuesday, October 7 at 6:30 p.m.
Speaker: Ellen Parker, Executive Director of Project Bread
Ellen Parker, Executive Director of Project Bread, will be the guest speaker at the fall potluck supper on Tuesday, October 7, 6:30 p.m. All are welcome and we hope that more parishioners will join us. We will be using some recipes from the Project Bread Cookbook for our dinner. In addition, we look for other potluck contributions. Please either sign up on the sign-up sheet in the vestibule at St. Mary’s or contact Anne Rippy Turtle at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 781-235-1961.
We are very excited that Ellen Parker can join us to talk about the changes she has spearheaded at Project Bread which have transformed Project Bread from a narrowly focused anti-hunger organization to a national model that presents a broad and comprehensive set of solutions for hunger relief and prevention. Working with vibrant new partnerships formed with research institutions, legislators, hospital networks, corporate partners, and the media as well as school districts Ellen Parker has reframed the thinking about hunger by focusing on public health and learning.
One tangible result of Ellen Parker’s efforts is a Project Bread cookbook, Let’s Cook Healthy School Meals; it is a first-of-its-kind tool to help school administrators and kitchen staff plan and prepare healthy meals which students will want to eat. The cookbook offers 100 recipes that have been kid-tested in cafeteria kitchens, and it meets the 2012 USDA school meal requirements. A link to the cookbook can be found at http://support.projectbread.org/site/PageServer?pagename=schoolcookbook.
Many of you have supported us, John and Anne Turtle, in our fund-raising efforts each year when we participate in the Walk for Hunger. We have been walkers for well over 20 years — so many years that we have lost count! Please join us on October 7 to learn more about Project Bread.
