This past week I shopped for special treats, I fussed over pretty pastries to purchase and today I hosted a group of lovelies into our home for a get together.
All the while I am all too aware that shopping for goodies and layering pretty pastries on platters is a blessing. Having enough to hand around to a group of friends is something I am always grateful for.
Around here we value gathering. And of course food. Both sustains us and brings us together. Ultimatly the prosepects of growing fresh food and bringing people together is why we chose to move last year.
We moved to our fixer upper on the outskirts of town so that we could grow our own foods and so that we could rear our own chickens and so that ultimatly we could open our doors of our home to those we love to share community and meals together.
That's precisely why World Vision's #meaningfulmeals campaign is close to our hearts and why today #WorldFoodDay is a fabulous day to share more!
Through the month of October, like minded food and family lovers everywhere are signing up to host a meaningful meal in their homes.
It's so simple to participate.
STEP 1: Host!
Simply host a meal or take a friend out for a treat. The point is to give back and to enjoy food together!
STEP 2: Donate!!
Do what you can! A little can go a long way when it's put in the right places. Donate to World Vision's food work to help end the cycle of poverty.
