Integrating-With-The-Community Bonanza

Volunteers Welcome

We're increasingly asked to share our experiences helping community-based residents volunteer in their surrounding communities. We, of course, like to focus on opportunities related to food, nutrition and preventive health.

Volunteering to help at a local food pantry, soup kitchen, bake sale, or to hand off water to marathon runners are proven ways to raise the bar and strengthen the town in which you live—all of which underscore a volunteer's value as a contributing citizen.

How To Make Conversation At Dinner

Connecting with others (your bandwagon!) surrounding mealtime and eating better is how most of us create shared responsibility and accountability for improved nutrition. So the art of conversation is important and we want to help in any way we can.

How To Set The Table

There are times when you want to set the table absolutely perfectly and according to formal custom. For those of us who routinely forget which side the water glass and bread plate go, we've got the lay of the land all spelled out.

Shoot us a question. Anytime! We’ll get back to you pronto.
