So thankful for Stone Creek Coffee and Artisan Grain Collaborative for being part of our Community of Generosity! ❤️ Interested in purchasing a loaf of bread for someone in our community? Go to https://www.stonecreekcoffee.com/merchandise/neighbor-loaves

NEIGHBOR LOAVES
We have partnered with the Artisan Grain Collaborative, Meadowlark Organics, and Lonesome Stone Milling to bring you Neighbor Loaves. Currently, hunger relief programs and food pantries are in dire need of bread. With the unused capacity in our own bakery due to the impact of COVID-19 on our business, we are baking bread for donation directly to Riverwest Food Pantry. With the purchase of Neighbor Loaves, we will donate freshly baked bread made from locally milled grains to those in our community that need it. Click this link in to read more about this program and purchase a loaf on our website for direct donation to Riverwest Food Pantry today - https://www.stonecreekcoffee.com/merchandise/neighbor-loaves

Opinion | Social Distancing Is a Privilege

For all of us it's hard to take the right precautions to prevent the spread of COVID-19, but for so many people in our community it's almost impossible to take these measures to protect themselves and the ones they love.

The idea that this virus is an equal-opportunity killer must itself be killed.

Praying for you all this morning! Blessings, peace and love!
Wonderful time volunteering this morning. Some of our UWM Center for International Education group got to help put together over 400 Thanksgiving meal item bags. What a great experience! Thank you Riverwest Food Pantry!
