The importance of home and the family table resonated deeply with the five women chefs participating. For Alisia Parrott of Everyday Gourmet Catering, she knows she is one of the lucky ones to be able to afford a home and have a safe haven to shelter in during this pandemic. A home is beyond the hierarchy of needs- it’s critical, Alisia said, and everyone deserves the opportunity to have that.
Five winners were randomly selected and Sydney and Beth delivered the meals and goodies to their homes.
“Everyone was joyous – the donors AND the givers. And the fact that we got to bring food to someone who had literally moved this week, another who was grieving her grandmother’s death, and to folks who are financially tight but donated to us anyway was just lovely,” Beth said. “It just felt very win-win, which is my favorite kind of fundraising – where relationships and mutual benefits are honored and part of the exchange.”
