Yes, I completely understand. Here in Alameda County, one in 5 people rely on the food bank, so we volunteer and donate whenever we can. So the Potlucks, while fun, have been a great way to raise awareness, too! Okay, maybe not ALL the salmon pickle aspic gets eaten, but it’s a brave bunch and we throw so little away. One of the best things about The Potluck really is the community it has built… AND the cheese logs. Jennye and I are super proud of it, and we’re so thrilled that Rusty wrote this up on here and we get to have conversations like this. Thank you again for bringing up an important point, and one that means a lot to us.
(if you are so inspired, here is where we are directing donations this time to help out with the awful wildfires here. http://refb.org/ )
