How did your group come together to help out Parenthesis?
We have had a dinner club where we assign a dish to everyone so the host only has to make one main dish. We wanted to take our joy of cooking beyond just a fun night for 5 couples. We loved the idea of cooking for women who are trying to raise children alone and who could certainly use a night off of their chores. Lisa Kitzman has long been a Parenthesis supporter, and helps with the Kitchen Walk every year. I am a counselor at OPRF, and when Ann Puccetti told me about the group for teen moms and the single moms, I asked how I might be able to help out. Our dinner club seemed like the perfect group to cook a meal together. When I brought it up, everyone was really excited and has been on board ever since.
