Food for Friends – CHRISTMAS Bread Edition is Coming up THIS Friday, December 16, Starting at 3pm!
We had a very successful Thanksgiving Bread Baking project this year, baking over 700 loaves of bread in about nine hours a few weeks ago – thank you to the volunteers who partnered with us on that project. We had so much fun that we’ve decided we couldn’t wait a whole year to do it again! We are partnering with Fauquier FISH to provide loaves of bread for their Christmas food basket project later in December.
Mark your calendars for Friday afternoon / evening December 16.
We’ll start in the parish hall at 3pm that day and go until we finish that evening (probably around 9pm). We’ve adjusted the times to accommodate volunteers work schedules so you can drop in after school or work to help us out. We are planning to bake 250 loaves and freeze another 250 for delivery to Fauquier FISH on Saturday December 17.
There is a job for everyone from supply shopping, kitchen setup and preparation, mixing of the dough, bagging and boxing the bread, and clean up. No task is too small, and everyone is welcome (even for just an hour). We need shifts of workers, so if you prefer a date/time, please let us know. There will be a sign up sheet on the community bulletin board if you prefer a time slot.
