(5.6) Okay, this began as a way to honor the nurses — and that is still a part of it — but a donation from Blount Fine Foods has been redirected to the community at large. Here is the invite from the Facebook event page.
Come one – Come all!!! Join us as we team up with The Mount Hope Community Center to share 1,000 cases of great, healthy Blount Fine Foods products in acknowledgment of National Nurses Week. The Lifespan Hospital staff and leadership were offered this gift and wanted to re-direct it to all the community – we were more than happy to oblige. We have some special friends coming in a food truck!
There is a limited capacity — check out the ‘reserve a spot’ button before heading over.
The event is hosted by the Mount Hope Association and The Elisha Project (a faith-based volunteer group focusing on getting food to those in need and giving Christians a good name across the country). I like this sentiment from their story page,
Anyone can do what we are doing and we hope that you do just that. Please get in touch with us and let us show you how.
Personally, I prefer government-run safety nets so people are not dependent on religious organizations, or the largesse of millionaires, when they are in need of food. It’s just what a civilized, modern society should be doing!
Having said that — thanks everybody. And Blount soups are delicious. Seen here is their Mexican corn chowder. Happy Seis de Mayo!
Open to the public, noon to 3pm, Wednesday, May 6, Hope High School, 324 Hope Street, (directions)
