Listening & Learning

This past week, First Presbyterian Church in Brookline hosted a Listening and Learning dinner with Women and Girls Thriving. The church provided a D.I.S.H-friendly meal (Delicious-Inexpensive-Sustainable-Healthy) of Santa Fe Stew, Mexican curtido, cornbread, and a Upside-down Pear Gingerbread cake. The members of the Healthy Eating and Lifestyle Working group partnered with the Brookline Recreation Department to have our engaging and motivating speaker, nutritionist, Sue Levy, join us!  40 women came to listen and learn and be in community with each other. It being the day after the election, I know many women were grateful for the time together in a welcoming space. As our wonderful lead Thriver, Ann Brackett said, “the kind gentleness of this group was incredibly comforting and hopeful.”

I’m really proud of my gingerbread cakes, these are numbers 2, 3, and 4. You really don’t want to see the first one:)
