Tonight’s menu and baking are dedicated to

The Sixth Annual Organic Food for Public Schools Benefit Bake

I sit now holding my head
Wet, cold, and Christmas tree tired,
But glad, too, to have had such a day.
Friends and neighbors came out
In this awful weather – more like
Being in a winter cloud then on
Dry land.

And tonight is the same though
The cause has turned. The day
Was for selling Christmas trees
To help fund the Jr./Sr. prom –
Tonight our work is for the
School food program. And again
The room is filled with people
Who care…about their kids…
And their town…and their world.

This is the look of constructive change.
This is how societies evolve: incremental
Conscientious acts.

What today seems revolutionary will
Someday seem quite commonplace:
Of course what our kids eat in school is important;
Of course our food, our health and our
Environment are interrelated; and that good civics
Is a lesson best taught by its doing.

Thank you for coming tonight. I have sometimes felt alone in this journey, but because of you, now I do not.

Love, George.
