“Before I joined From The Ground UP, I never had the opportunity to act upon something I was passionate about. This group has given me a voice in our community and has taught me so much about the food system. It has been truly amazing to see an idea, like the community food waste dinners become a reality.” ~Spencer, 2nd Year From The Ground UP leader.

@nourish.my.soul Another day of community, cooking and NOURISHMENT!! What do you do when someone (Susan) shares an abundance of apples with you??? Well you make applesauce and apple jelly of course! What do we do with abundance received?? We SHARE!! Nourish My Soul will be distributing this yummy goodness to those who are affected by the government shutdown along with other resources and information. We want to make sure that all those affected know, we care! #nourishmysoul #jrchefs #bebraveenoughtolove #govermentshutdown #wecare #letskeepthinkingofnewways #buildabettertable #share #canning #gateful #love
CT Women’s March! We March On! We continue to show up, walk the walk and Keep our focus. The criticism of the march is good and important. We need to stand United against any form of hate speech/ violence. Yet, we also have to be committed to the greater picture of the movement. Our safety, our health, our children, our men, our LGBTQ community, black lives, Indigenous People’s, our women/ families who are suffering from deportations splitting the family, children and parents being ripped from one another... there are too many issues to list, each of them with the root that it is culturally (and in world culture) acceptable to abuse women, to use us as a commodity that is looked as a thing not a human... And the time has come to say enough! The time has come to heal the broken connection to The Mother , The Feminine! The Earth! #womansmarch #womansmarchct #motherearth #wemarchon #thesacredpath #solidarity #compassion #endviolenceagainstwomen #endviolence #refugeeswelcome #blacklivesmatter #nourishoneanother #nonviolence #inclusion #loveoneanother #buildabettertable #share #heal #innerwork #dotherightthing #peacewithin #walkthewalk #showup
The Great Wall Of China! Another wall made for border security... now a tourist attraction. Do we really have to repeat what we know already ultimately fails? Is it worth the internal divide as well as the external one? Is it worth the suffering it is causing within and without? I find what is going on ridiculous on a scale that saddens me. Yet, I have compassion for those who are sooo scared and trapped in their fear they continually hold on to the abuse. Just a reminder, there are other ways and avenues to keep everyone safe. There are ways to feel safe, but it does start with your own ability to choose to be that goodness yourself and heal the wounds that have fed your fears to the point of being the abuser. #wallscomedown #resist #forthepeople #buildabettertable #innerwork #breakingdownbarriers #loveoneanother #bethegoodness #findanotherway photo in National Geographic
A Big Night!! These three people are the picture of how inspiration, shared vision and hard work can transform an entire community!! A filled town hall with excitement for the proposed Kearns Community Center (Granby CT)! A much needed vote YES, meaning we can start fund raising!!

In 2018 we we found success in our #BUILDABETTERTABLE goals thanks to all of you! We established the groundwork for a new way of doing things, rethinking how "it's always been done" and looking around the table to see who was missing, ensuring that our table has a seat for everyone. As we reflect, we feel inspired to move into 2019 where we will #IgniteAMovement by investing in our young people - their ideas and energy are truly remarkable, they just need a community that values and believes in them! We have found that it is hard to be in a room with them and not have their spark ignite something in you. Rather than extinguish that spark, Nourish My Soul is committed to feeding it with the proper fuel and directing it in ways that will bring light to EVERYONE! #wecandothis #2019 #happynewyear #youhelpedbuildabettertable #letsigniteamovementtogether #bettertogether #nourishmysoul #fromthegroundUP #nourishmysouljrchef #nourishmysoulgrowinghealthykids #ignitehope #ignitecommunity #ignitekindness #ignitethegood #thisishowwemakechange #inspired #2019willbelit🔥 #spark #newsystems
This! It’s okay to walk away from the table that creates hurdles every time you look to sit down. Or to walk away from the table that accepts you, but creates those hurdles to whom they choose. Because the truth is, the table we are creating is soooo much more fun! #truth #buildabettertable #weareintjistogether #change #freedom #motherearth #nourishOneAnother #thereisabetterway #wecanlive #socialjustice #youcanlivedifferently #therereallyisenough #honoroneanother

Wow!!! We collaborated with Resilience Grows Here, Friend to Friend Food Pantry, east Granby Lions Club, East Granby Women's Club, and the Town of East Granby to provide a free community dinner. We thought maybe we would get 100 people. Over 200 people showed up!!! Our @frmgroundup leaders and our Jr Chefs kept throwing together the food to make sure everyone left with a full belly! I didn't get to pop out of the kitchen very much, but when I did the energy was amazing! I only got this picture of the suggestion/feedback wall we had up. 😁
Thank you to the many people that helped pull this off and to those that joined us for dinner. I think we might be into something!

“If I am an advocate for anything, it is to move. As far as you can, as much as you can. Across the ocean, or simply across the river. Walk in someone else’s shoes or at least eat their food. It’s a plus for everybody.”~Anthony Bourdain May we always honor you by continuing your work that we so deeply admire. An advocate and voice for so many facing opression around the world. Using food as a way to unite us all. *If you are struggling, please call the Suicide Hotline 1- 800-273-8255. You are needed. You are valued. You are loved.

Our Jr Chefs were so honored to be able to provide Katie and her family a special dinner Thursday for their first meal together at home since the accident. Katie is home from the hospital and looking great!! She has a long road to a full recovery, but she is home enjoying the company of her kitties and the comfort of her own bed. Thank you to all the chefs that participated - it meant the world to the family and Katie was excited for a bacon inspired dish! The menu: Maple Bacon Chicken, Smashed Sweet Potatoes ( thank you @oxenhillfarm for the sweet potatoes and the recipe!!), Roasted Brocolli, French Carrot Salad, and Creamy Coconut Cake for dessert!

Our @frmgroundup teen leaders had a night of activism: sign making for the #marchforourlives followed by soup making for #EmptyBowls and The O'Neill Family.

Tonight we made a delicious, healthy meal for Katie and her family (with her favorite ingredient - BACON! But we used chicken bacon) Pumpkin Bacon Pasta, Brussel Sprout and Kale Saute, and Lemon Blueberry Cake for dessert. It was DELICIOUS! We hope this meal brings much needed love, comfort, and nourishment to the family.

These are some of the fierce women on our Board of Directors that worked tirelessly to support the Huang family. This is what it means to live our mission. Nourish My Soul is fortunate to have such a dedicated board that goes above and beyond for our community.

So much joy - this is the impact of communities supporting one another. The Huang family still has a fight in front of them, but they are together and they are safe.

The flu is hitting everyone hard right now! Our Jr Chef Community Outreach was a dinner honoring the "Specials" teachers that normally get overlooked. Art, Music, Tech, and Gym teachers were invited to share a special meal. Only two were currently unaffected by the germs and able to join us. We had a great time serving them and sharing a meal and great conversations. It is so important for the teachers and students to have time outside the classroom to see each other in new ways. The chefs really shined with their stew, winter salad, and fruit tart. Delicious!

I am SO PROUD of these students!!! After months of learning about food systems and analyzing their local system they decided that food waste is an issue for their community. They put in hours and hours of time organizing an event to educate their community about the issue. They were able to collect "ugly", "past their prime" foods and make them into incredibly delicious meals for our community. They also collected foods from restaurants. These teens devoted most of their weekend to preparing for this community meal - hours and hours!!! Their presentation was moving. I am so blessed to have the honor of working with them.

Salvation dinner. Avocado toast on Ezekial Sesame bread, @thesweetbeet 's seasoned Japanese Yams and Cashew Creme from their Paleo Taco Salad, topped with fresh chopped Cilantro. All of these ingredients needed to be used asap, so in the spirit of @nourish.my.soul 's #nowaste #event tomorrow night, I salvaged & ate very well! #buildabetterplate #buildabettertable #nouirish #avocadotoast
Our From The Ground UP leaders are planting the seeds of change and watching it grow! These students are changing the way we look at food, making real changes to the food system, and educating the community about real food, the problems with our system, and how they can make a real difference. I am inspired for our future when I see what they can accomplish. This program runs entirely on donations, thank you for helping us make real change! If you haven't yet made a donation, please consider sponsoring one of our leaders - either partially or for the entire amount of $2500/student. What a meaningful gift this holiday!

What does Food Justice mean to you? Food is essential for survival. The food we eat becomes the building blocks to all our cells. Eating the right foods keep us mentally and physically healthy and strong. Sharing that food with others builds strong emotional bonds. We all deserve to maintain control over how we feed our bodies with access to real food and the ability to share it with others. Help us to #BUILDABETTERTABLE and unsure that everyone has access to these basic human rights.

Well that's a wrap! Our last session of Jr chef for 2017 concluded with them choosing to help a Girl Scout troop earn their cooking badge. The chefs planned and ran 4 separate stations: *Healthy Breakfast Burritos
*Quinoa Salad
*Smoothies
*Pumpkin Mousse
They taught the girls food groups, knife skills, flavor, mis en place, and challenged them to experiment and try new things! So proud of these chefs - truely becoming incredible leaders and agents of change in their community.
The remainder of the year our chefs will be given more community outreach opportunities to brighten the holidays for others.
