Our Neighbors' News

August brought an abundance of blessings to One Bistro. This newsletter will focus largely on National Everybody Eats Week (NEEW); the volunteers who served and the generous donors who gave. You will see plenty of photos which really do tell the story.

Before we get to NEEW, we want to begin with a heart-felt "Thank You" to the volunteer groups who served the five Community Meal’s we hosted in August.

Now, to National Everybody Eats Week! 

We had a great week. One Bistro was filled with great energy, big smiles, new volunteers, delicious food, generous donors, lots of laughter and many first time diners.

"I love One Bistro’s mission because it works! We see results but moreover it brings comfort for those who are food insecure. All humans are very proud individuals and this program gives them the ability to earn their meals and that in turn makes them feel a part of their journey instead of being a burden."   Matt Bennett

"Congratulations on such a successful fundraiser. As Wanda stated so well, it’s an honor to participate in such a worthy cause. Thanks for all you do!"   Sally Fowler

Each day during NEEW, we had people who matched the Pay it Forward donations at the register. It created a great buzz and introduced new diners to the bistro.
