A Mother's Kitchen Project
February has been a busy month planning for Br Dayamrita's arrival on Feb 13th but we are still doing Karma Kitchen this Friday. We'll be bringing our beautiful energy from Br. Dayamrita's program to out food preparation and service on the 18th.
We are trying a new approach - there will now be one or two core volunteers managing the recipes, ingredients, kitchen and volunteers (just for Karma Kitchen, not all of the volunteers for the Community Picnic).This month it will be Cathy Devanney and Gail Kelley. Please contact them by email to coordinate your ingredient contribution or seva (selfless service job).
Now in it's second year, Karma Kitchen is going strong but needs your help to keep it that way. The third Friday of each month we gather in community to cook and prepare food for the Homeless and low income families at UUSP's Weekly Friday Community Picnic.
Led by Amma devotees (www.Amma.org ), Karma Kitchen has been blessed by Ammachi herself last May when she was visiting the United States. Her Grace adds that essential touch of warmth and goodness that is conveyed to each person we serve. It's Her love that gets mixed, tossed, baked, and sliced into the nutritious meal and Her compassion that we ourselves feel when we get teary-eyed or a lump in our throats as one of the picnic go-ers thanks us with a heartfelt smile or a "God bless you."
Won't you experience these blessings with us?
