Dinners by Donation

Blossom Center dining hall is now providing weekly dinners at 5:30pm every Wednesday in September, and every Tuesday in October.  Mary is cooking menus subject to change, but updated on Facebook at: Blossom-Center Middlefield.  Community feedback is encouraged –either by voting with your feet by attending the nights that work well for people, or by comment on facebook site or this website: or leave a message at 623-2155×111. There is a sign-up sheet in the dining room, but more food is made than needed so RSVPs are not required. Left overs will be available for take-home meals or lunches.

Newly cooked lunches are every Thursday at 12:30pm for both September and October.

Donations can be in dollars, or –if you coordinate this with Mary– donate food abundance from your gardens, or help with prep and clean-up.

The Community Center’s mission is to improve quality of life for Middlefield and surrounding area. One thought is that a local place to get home-cooked food might improve life, and strengthen community (for those who stay to eat with neighbors and friends).

Blossom Center would also like to host mini-workshops on subjects like nutrition, sharing recipes, and other health and wellness, or fun topics. People with recipes or interests to share should be in touch. So should people interested in adding an after-dinner music element. Blossom Center is at 16 Bell Rd, Middlefield, upper rear entrance.

Eating together

crop067-lunch crowdCommunity Potluck Dinner is Second Friday of each Month (except Aug) at 6:30pm. We’ve been hosting these fun and friendly events since 2010. 35-55 people usually gather. Newcomers are welcome. That’s the beauty of potlucks –infinitely expandable.

Fall 2015 dates for 2nd Friday Potluck are 9/11, 10/9, 11/13, & 12/11/2015.

We got a reply to the request for a cook, so we are trying Dinners by Donation every Wednesday at 5:30pm for the month of September, and accepting feedback and direction on days, times, types of food, which best fits enhancing people’s lives. (That’s the overarching goal of any of these experiments.) Want to share a cook? Want to ‘go out to eat’ at a meet-new-friends, and join-your-neighbors type meal? Since these are not potluck, an RSVP list is helpful. –But not required, since we try to make enough food to have left-overs for lunches or take-out on Thursday.  (Sign-up sheets are in the Dining Room –back entrance 16 Bell Rd.) We had 35 folks come to the meal on 9/2. The remaining dates for Dinners by Donation are Sept 9, 16, 23, 30.
