Cheers to 25 Years!

Food for Others turned 25 this week! To celebrate, local experts teach us how to make new twists on classics like the Old Fashioned and Lobster Thermidor. Then a sommelier shows us how to choose wine to go with that lobster.  Keep scrolling for an update on our Covid-19 response by our Executive Director and a few words from families receiving food at FFO. Even though we couldn't celebrate with you in person this year, we hope you enjoy this virtual party. Thank you for being part of the Food for Others family.

Help a lonely turkey

Thanksgiving is coming and the freezer is full of turkeys and chickens, but we're a little short on side dishes. We could use your help to make sure families in need have a great Thanksgiving. The next time you shop, please consider adding a few trimmings to your cart for Food for Others. We especially need stuffing and gravy.
