Editorial: Feeding the neighborhood

Among the many cancellations due to COVID-19 is the 2020 Food from the Heart annual gathering at White Hall Plantation.

This midsummer event, which features food prep demonstrations in exchange for monetary and food donations, directly benefits people in need in Gloucester County. Last year, Food from the Heart brought in 40 grocery bags and $6,300 for the county’s three food pantries.

We urge anyone with a “heart” for this good work to send donations this year to the Food from the Heart Foundation, 5631 White Hall Road, Gloucester, Va. 23061. Let’s help our neighbors.

True, it is but one of many good events that had to be put off this year … it is also one with an immediate impact for people in need.

Here is an aptly-named recipe from 2009’s Food from the Heart, the earliest event we can find in our files. It makes good use of the vegetables now bountiful in local gardens.
