National Oatmeal Month

As temperatures dip and we all feel like hibernating til Spring, January is the perfect time to think oatmeal! January is National Oatmeal Month. Here are a couple of ways to spread some kindness with an oatmeal theme.
- Bake a batch of oatmeal cookies and deliver them to your local police department, an elderly neighbor or leave them in the mailbox for your mail delivery person. Click here for a recipe.  
- Organize an oatmeal drive for a local food pantry. Of course, all donations are appreciated but it might be fun to focus on donations of oatmeal. It is a nutritious meal that warms the soul.
