Twice a month we provide free, family-friendly dinners, which are served in a relaxed atmosphere. There are other organizations in the Derry, New Hampshire area that also offer free and delicious meals to the public. Please see the calendar on the right-hand side of this blog for a list of upcoming meals.

Happy, Joyous Carbs!

Breakfast today was awesome, and hopefully the start of an annual tradition.  We had two different kinds of quiche, noodle kugel, HOT CHOCOLATE, French toast with real maple syrup, fruit salad and a whole bunch of other stuff.  Everything was home-made and everything looked super delicious.  Rabbi Levy, Amy Dattner Levy and Linda Cohn-Rosenberg put on a sing-a-long and sang, among other things, "Santa Claus is Coming to Town," and "Happy, Joyous Chanukah."  What could be better than carbs, music, and friends?  Join us in January, folks, for another great meal.

Etz's Elijah's Table in December is a Breakfast!

We are trying something different this year.  We're having breakfast at Etz Hayim Synagaogue for our December Elijah's Table:   real eggs, real quiche, real french toast, real goodies.  Please join us!

Thank you for Thanksgiving.

Thank you to all the folks who contributed to the Community Meals Network Thanksgiving Day meal -- those who peeled and chopped in advance, who helped with getting out the notices, who cooked and served on the day of the event, and who attended.  It was wildly successful.  We are thankful.
Salvation Army Lt. Kathryn Mayes, DECOFT senior warden Maggie Mackie-Ciancio,
and Salvation Army Lt. Kathryn Bender were three people at the heart of the effort this year.

A wonderful crowd.

Go Fund Me!

I am excited to announce the "Go Fund Me" page that the Episcopal Church of the Transfiguration and Etz Hayim have set up together to raise money for Elijah's Table, a joint project of our interfaith campus that provides free meals to the public. Please contribute, if you can, and please spread the word on your FB page. It would be GREAT if this could "go viral," and we could raise enough money to continue to provide FREE and delicious dinners to those in need for the next year or two. Here is the link:

The Etz Restaurant: Great food, great customers, and a great staff.

What a fabulous meal tonight at the "Etz Restaurant":  Pizza, veggie lasagna, salad, brocoli, zucchini, and dessert.  So much good food, so many wonderful customers.  And, thankfully, new volunteers to help us spread the cheer.  A million thanks.
