Food and Community; How they go hand in hand

A Tribute to Wish Dads on Father’s Day

You’ve heard of Make-A-Wish, right? That non-profit organization that grants wishes to children with life-threatening illnesses. I always looked at them and smiled knowing what they do.

You see, Make-A-Wish goes above and beyond to grant a wish that proves instrumental in the healing of children.
