Five Minutes with Will and Nina Chacon, Luna Caffe:
“We tried to make Luna Caffe look and feel like a coffee shop that we would usually hang out at. We wanted it to be a place that we would want to spend time in: the ambiance, and the neighborhood people who hang out here.“
Now that you are sitting back, enjoying a bounty of leftovers, take a moment to make a plan to help feed those people in the Port City who are hungry. In addition to civic groups, non-profit organizations, churches, and many businesses, this list will help you find where to donate food in Wilmington NC.
In a couple days, we’ll prepare an amazing feast to be shared with friends and family. We’ll typically gather around gorgeous place settings, a zillion side dishes and await the ceremonial entrance of a perfectly roasted (or fried-my favorite) turkey to get the festivities in full swing. A cool nip in the air, perhaps some football or family board games will also highlight the holiday and a day off never hurts anyone’s feelings either. It’s a grand time to eat until we say “I can’t believe I ate THAT much” and settle down for a little nap before round two (or three) of follow-on desserts round out the event.
Five Minutes with Elena Brent Rosemond-Hoerr, at Biscuits & Such blog:
“I’m really interested in exploring food culture, and the history behind recipes; in learning how foods have evolved as part of Southern culture through the generations. That’s a movement that I’m really drawn to.“
Five Minutes with Robin Hill, Panacea Brewing Company:
“It was nothing we had ever dreamed of doing, but it was the right time, the right opportunity, and the right product. We visited a couple other breweries, went to KombuchaKon, learned a ton, and just did it.“
Five Minutes with Chef Taylor Bailey, Hieronymus Seafood:
“When you have a knowledge of the people involved in sourcing food products, you see how much the restaurant business can do for our local economy. That’s really important. It’s a huge responsibility. You have to be connected, otherwise this work is just mundane.“
