Thanksgivings

Friday, November 19th, 2010

Thanks to everyone who helped make The Food Pantry’s 10th anniversary party so special! We especially thank Anthony Myint and Karen Leibowitz, who cooked and served a delicious spread (the grilled octopus and the chamomile tres leches cake were standouts!) To Speakeasy and Social Brew, who donated local beer (love the porter); to Deb Tullman who showed her film about The Food Pantry (see it on this site) and Clark Cole, who rocked the place with live accordion music; to DJ Bertie Pearsons and MC Paul Fromberg; to Michael Reid, above and beyone; and to all our amazing volunteers, donors, friends and colleagues: we are so grateful.

We’re grateful for all the people who’ve made The Food Pantry possible, week after week and year after year. Let us give thanks!
