Just like that, Thanksgiving has come and gone—well, some of it remains, if my bathroom scale is any indication. We hope your bellies were filled with good Thanksgiving food all week long, and that you were able to stretch those leftovers through the weekend.
One major holiday down, several to come. December is just around the corner and that means plenty of holiday dinners, breakfasts with Santa, tree lighting ceremonies and more.
Community lunch. Pastor Judith Gehrig wanted to create a weekly free lunch for everyone in the community to come together—not just those in need.
Every week, this delicious lunch at the Centenary United Methodist Church in Lambertville brings together locals from the Lambertville/New Hope area. There is always a hearty and filling spread consisting of soup, sandwich fixings, hot entrees, pasta, cookies, and more.
The lunch is served at the community kitchen of the church on Wednesdays from 11:30 am – 1:30 pm. The lunch is free or you can give a donation. Call 609.397.2468 for more information. Learn more about the community lunch at the Centenary United Methodist Church here.
Soup’s up. This Thursday, December 1, come eat soup and meet Elina Fuhrman. Fuhrman was diagnosed with an aggressive form of breast cancer but instead of letting the disease get the best of her, she decided to take action and founded Soupelina, a mission-driven company that serves food in the community and revolutionizes the way America looks at food.
Soupelina looks at food with a food-as-medicine philosophy, and it inspires people to have fun while still eating healthy. Some of the soup names from Elina’s company include “Lentil Me Entertain You,” “Kale-ifornia Dreaming,” and “I Yam Who I Yam.” Fuhrman will serve wine and hors d’oeuvres this Thursday at Martine’s Riverhouse in New Hope from 6 – 8 pm. She will also do a book signing and a cooking demonstration for guests. Tickets cost $15 at the door.
