Ethical Eating Group “Salad Supper” @ Berrien Unitarian Universalist Fellowship

Ethical Eating Group "Salad Supper" @ Berrien Unitarian Universalist Fellowship
There will be an Ethical Eating Group “salad supper” on Thursday evening July 29th at 6:30 pm at BUUF. Kids are welcome. Please bring a vegetarian or vegan salad that will serve 6-8 people and your beverage. Donations of dessert, fruit, crackers or bread will also be welcome.
We hope to start meeting monthly to get acquainted, share ideas related to our own diet choices and look at what is happening “good”  and “not so good” in the food world around us.
Please bring a calendar and ideas for an outing/get together in August.
If we all want to eat outside…..bring insect spray……a comfy chair if you prefer…..or a blanket to sit on the ground.
If you are Covid uncomfortable eating shared food, that is perfectly ok. Bring your own meal for the evening. And of course, masks are still welcome.

Prepare and Serve Lunch at Benton Harbor Soup Kitchen @ Benton Harbor Soup Kitchen
Aug 7 @ 9:00 am – 1:00 pm

Berrien UU  Fellowship serves lunch at the Benton Harbor Soup Kitchen the first Saturday of every even-numbered month (February, April, June, August, October and December). Berrien UU volunteers prepare the meal, greet guests and help clean up the kitchen. This is a terrific opportunity to serve the greater community, support our Social Justice mission and enjoy the company of fellow BUUFers and guests at the kitchen. Rev. Jim McConnell generously leads the group in planning the meal and dessert and he will gladly find a role for all volunteers, whether they’ve helped dozens of times or this is their first time. Please consider coming to the Soup Kitchen to help, even if it’s only for an hour or two.

The Soup Kitchen is located at 233 Michigan Street in Benton Harbor.
