I am thrilled to report that the Tiny Urban Kitchen fund has currently raised over $3700 for the Boston Rescue Mission!
Thanks so much for those of you who donated generously to help those in need. Homelessness is a serious problem in Massachusetts.
On Superbowl Sunday, fellow food bloggers Michelle from Fun, Fearless in Beantown, Elina from Healthy and Sane, Meghan from Travel, Wine, and Dine, and I spent our afternoon cooking and serving our ever-so-popular bacon wrapped pork loin at the Boston Rescue Mission Sunday Community Dinner.
We had a fabulous time. These gals ROCK in the kitchen. Even though there were only four of us, we were able to get everything chopped, prepped, and put in the oven with over an hour to spare.
The guests who came to eat absolutely loved the meal. Some said, "this is the best meal I've had all week." Others were super appreciative, thanking us for giving up our Superbowl Sunday in order to serve them.
I was really touched, hearing from all these folks. It just made me appreciate so much more what the Boston Rescue Mission, along with many other local organizations, are doing to fight homelessness in our city.
Heart for the Homeless Reception, Eastern Bank, Boston
Speaking of other organizations, this past week I also had the wonderful opportunity to attend a reception called "Heart for the Homeless." Ten organizations dedicated to fighting homelessness came together at this event. It was a great chance to meet other supporters, as well as learn a bit more about homelessness in Massachusetts. I was inspired to see so many people who had a heart to solve this problem.
Thanks so much all for your support in trying to continue chipping away at this immense but (hopefully) solvable problem!
The Tiny Urban Kitchen Fundraiser will be coming to a close at the end of this month, so if you're interested in donating, please do so in the next two weeks! You can also check out the really nice article they wrote about Tiny Urban Kitchen here.
