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.

Good food, adorable hosts, and styling guests; isn't it wonderful?

We had a ton of food today, including cheese and crackers, eggplant parm, kugel, garden salad, green beans, garlic bread, and LOTS of vanilla and chocolate cake. The three adorable girls pictured here helped serve (with help from a mom, of course). And this "styling" guest let us know she thought the food was delicious. On my way home, the 1976 song, "Isn't she lovely"? popped into my head. (Click on the title to hear the great Mr. Stevie Wonder celebrate the birth of his daughter: "Isn't she lovely? Isn't she wonderful?")
