Gilead’s Body & Soul Pantry

November 29, 2018. We continue with our winter pantry hours of 3-6pm, and welcome all. We have just started our season but thought we would give our usual chefs a month off. This month we have guest chefs Donna and Bill. (You may remember their great chicken parmigiana from this past spring.) This time they will be preparing Ziti and Meatballs. There will also be a tossed salad and Italian bread. For dessert, we will be serving chocolate or vanilla pudding.

Our Fellowship Hall welcomes all individuals. We are located at the intersection of Routes 7 & 278 in Center Brunswick. If you are not good with stairs, we do have an elevator which makes it an easy access to our Pantry Items and the Dinner.

Glendora Vegetarian Club

The nursery school teacher said, “Children we are all free.” The little boy said, “No, I am four.”

Do you need entree ideas?  Try Cedar Lakes vegan chik’n, Worthington vegetarian meatless ham, MorningStar Farms veggie bacon, Quorn vegetarian sausage patties, Loma Linda vegan hot dogs. Red Robin, West Lebanon had a vegan thanksgiving; there were over 60 of us, the food was an exciting variety of tastes and texture.

Live harmlessly.  Murdering a turkey is a strange choice for giving thanks. For the wolf shall dwell with the lamb. The leopard shall lie down with the goat, and the calf and the young lion together, and the cow and the bear shall feed. Their young ones shall lie down together, and the lion shall eat straw like the bull. They shall not hurt nor destroy in all of God’s holy mountain, for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the Lord.
