The Whole Hog

"There is something very significant about the act of bringing people together around a table to eat, whatever their differences: the very act of cooking and sharing food is a unifying one.

Was an ok evening. Food was nice but not as good as I'd expected.

An interesting first grub club experience with tasty starters

Really loved the themes of food and learning. And peace.

What a FABULOUS thing to do and raise awareness as well as get fed in a very loving way.

Terrific night for a great cause, and we learned something, too! Can't wait for next year's!
