Community Plate, a new nonprofit organization founded by Karl Schatz and Margaret Hathaway of Ten Apple Farm, invites you to join us at the Freeport Haraseeket Grange #9 for a special evening of connection through the sharing of food, stories, and recipes. Story Sharing Potluck Suppers are an opportunity to engage with new and old friends and to make connections around something we all have in common: the food we eat and our family food stories. Bring a dish (with a story!) to share, an open mind and an open heart. During the dinner we’ll be sharing stories around the table, and over dessert, you’ll be treated to a collection of live storytelling performances from practiced storytellers — some may even be your neighbors! Bring your recipe to the event, and afterwards we’ll be compiling them into a mini community cookbook that all attendees will receive to commemorate our evening together and the community we created.
As we get ready for Thanksgiving, our theme for this evening is “Gratitude.” We’ll be sharing stories around this theme, and giving thanks for the community that we are together. Don’t miss out on this chance to create lasting memories and forge new friendships. We look forward to sharing food and stories with you!
This free event is hosted by Community Plate. While your ticket “in” is your special dish, those wishing to contribute something can make a donation to Community Plate., either online or at the door. Community Plate is a registered nonprofit organization in Maine, currently applying for 501(c)3 status.
