one piece of the puzzle

This article
about Culinary Cornerstones at Episcopal Community Services in Kansas City doesn't say much about local, sustainable, seasonal - but it does offer one piece of the puzzle.

Why shouldn't folks who love to cook but don't meet the profile for students at other professional cooking schools be given an opportunity to develop good skills?

And the synergy between a community meal program and a classy cooking school for those who are variously abled and situated is just great.

When I was working with a community meal at my parish in Los Angeles, I often dreamed of meals open to anyone who was hungry or lonely in the community that were so good others who were well fed and befriended would pay to eat them. Shouldn't life as though the reign of God mattered be like that?
