What’s Happening at Food for Thought

Chef and Volunteers Cooking in a New Kitchen!
Freshly prepared food for our congregate lunch program is now being prepared in a new location! Local nonprofit, Worth Our Weight, is generously renting its kitchen to Food For Thought every Monday. Chef Coby Leibman and our volunteer cooking crew (featured above) couldn’t be happier in this large kitchen with plenty of room to prepare healthy food for our clients.
We are very thankful that Worth Our Weight has allowed us┬áto use their kitchen and encourage you to support them. The Worth Our Weight Cafe serves brunch every Sunday from 8 am – 2 pm. Catering is also available for events and private parties. We hope you will consider them for your dining and catering needs, as they have been so supportive of Food For Thought.
