Really fantastic…

Today, we came across some photos from 1997 and 1998. We were still in the church basement in Dinkytown, and making due with the borrowed space. And we also have pictures of our early days at 1414 Franklin Avenue, with Bill Rowe, our founder, cutting the ribbon on this, the first place that was “our own”. But I can’t wait until 10 years from now, when we look out our doors from 2500 Bloomington Avenue and think about how far we’ve come, and how much more we can still do to provide great food for those who are living with illness in our community.
