MAGIC OF GOOD FOOD 11/5/2020
While we continue to lament the fact that we aren't able to gather around the table every week as we have for many years, we are adapting to pandemic-safe approaches to community building and connecting. But we still believe in the magic of good food, shared with one another, so Green Wood community members and staff are delivering 70+ delicious meals each week to individuals at home. We combine each meal delivery with an informal wellness check, a friendly face and maybe a laugh or two. Thanks to our kitchen wizards, St. John's Anglican Church, the friendly delivery crew and the Northumberland United Way/Federal ESCF funding that makes this possible. Bon Appetit!
