Vegetarian Potluck, Monday, TBA
Sponsored by the Climate Justice Task Force. If you are new to vegetarian cooking or don’t have time to cook, there is always an abundance of food so please come anyway. We organize these potlucks in an effort to highlight the adverse effect the meat and cheese industry has on climate change and in the hopes that more and more of us will take the Meatless Monday pledge.

Bread & Roses Food Prep
Fourth Saturday of the month, NP Kitchen
Bread & Roses is a soup kitchen in Lawrence that serves daily meals to those in need. For many years, North Parish has prepared a dinner meal for them to be served on 4th Saturday of each month. We pick up the ingredients and prepare a meal of Shepherd’s Pie in the Parish Hall kitchen that we deliver to them that afternoon. The commitment is only for a couple of hours on a Saturday (from 1-3pm) and is a very worthwhile service project that is becoming more important in these tough economic times. I am continuing to create a list of people who would want to participate in the future. Please contact Carolyn Murphy at email@example.com. You will be assisting people who need a helping hand and feel better for doing it!
