Moveable Feast’s fund-raiser on Thursday (Sept. 17) has particular meaning to me this year. First, if you’re not familiar with the nonprofit group, it delivers nutritious meals to people who are living with AIDS or breast cancer.
You can help by dining out on Thursday when many restaurants in the Baltimore area will donate at least 20 percent of their sales that day to Moveable Feast. Some restaurants, like Gertrude’s, Brewer’s Art, and Woodberry Kitchen (chef/owner Spike Gjerde is chairman of the event) are sharing a whopping 50 percent of their sales. Check out a full list of participating restaurants.
Unfortunately, I won’t be able to dine out this year because I’m having surgery for my own breast cancer tomorrow (Sept. 15). The prognosis is good, and I’m very fortunate to have many people cooking meals for me during my recovery, including my favorite chef, daughter Brigitte, who dishes up great food at Miss Shirley’s.
But I hope you’ll support Moveable Feast for all the people who don’t have access to home-cooked meals.
I’ll be back to blogging soon.
