Bill Penzy, the awesome CEO of Penzy’s Spices, that he intended to “loot” his own store in Kenosha and give away spices and seasonings to food pantries. “Property can be replaced”, he said, “life can’t.” In our church kitchen, you may see bumper stickers, magnets and dish towels that say “Heal the world, cook dinner tonight” or “Love people. Cook them tasty food.” Those are from Penzy’s.
Second Helping welcomes newly trained cooks: Rachel Whestone, Mechelle Martinez, Lucas Shivers, and Les Kuhlman. They join a truly committed cadre of volunteers who cook, serve, and make lunches and desserts for our Sunday Supper guests. So far this quarter, Second Helping has provided 1,591 meals to the community. This includes the 623 Sunday supper guests who pick up to go meals and lunches. The number also counts 638 sack lunches, 105 second helpings, and 225 meals to other community groups.
HELP NEEDED: Sunday supper volunteers and desserts, homemade cookies for lunches, prayers for this mission, cash, pantry items such as breakfast bars, oatmeal packets, pasta, canned goods, and FRESH produce (let Linda know about the produce so we can plan it in the meals!)
We have new stoves! Look for more about donations, volunteers, and kitchen updates in the next newsletter!
“Part of cooking encompasses the science of taking care of others and hand washing is where that begins.” Bill Penzy
