A great weekend for Squash Hunger!
Over Martin Luther King Jr. weekend, Healthy World Cafe partnered with The Greenhouse and York County Food Alliance for the third annual Squash Hunger! Volunteers came together to recover, preserve and share food in the community.
We processed more than ONE TON (!!) of butternut squash, onions, garlic and sweet potatoes to cook a squash soup that will be distributed to a host of groups working to end hunger in the area. Yeah, our volunteers rock.
Check out a photo album from the weekend on our Facebook page, plus media coverage from The York Daily Record/Sunday News, York Dispatch, PennLive.com and CBS21.
