We have heard time and time again that our meals are delicious and much appreciated by all. Our theme for November is “Gratitude.” Local Ham from Patchwork Farms (proceeds of which will go to the Missouri Rural Crisis Center) will be prepared by Pat. Please sign up for any of the accompanying dishes such as mashed potatoes, salad, vegetables, side vegetables such as green beans, peas, broccoli, etc. or any other accompaniment or dessert and join us! Feel free to take two slots if you wish Help with clean up is also much appreciated so if you can’t make something but would like to help clean up, you would be so welcome!

Dear Friends,

Show Me Dharma will again be sponsoring the evening meal at Loaves and Fishes, 702 Wilkes Boulevard, Wilkes Boulevard United Methodist Church, on Wednesday, Feb. 28. The theme is Mexican food this month. We would like people to sign up for one or more slots using Sign Up Genius at this URL:

Those who sign up for the main dish are asked to provide 20 servings of some sort of Mexican main dish, e.g. enchiladas, burritos, tacos, etc. Side dishes can be Mexican beans, rice, Queso cheese sauce, chips, etc., and vegetables can be of any variety or cold salads, and any sort of dessert is acceptable.
We ask that volunteers who want to help serve and clean up arrive at 4, and those dropping off food to do so no later than 4:30 pm at the rear entrance. With many people staying to help clean up, we were able to have everything finished before 7 pmlast month.
We want to thank the many volunteers from our sangha who participated in this project in January. We had a wonderful experience. It went very smoothly and it felt so good to be of service to the community in this way.


Caya Tanski, on behalf of the Caring Committee of Show-me Dharma

Thanks so much for your kindness and generosity.
