To Do List: Get Tickets to 100 Bowls of Compassion

You guys have read my posts about volunteering at Miriam's Kitchen (here, here and here). I love the mission - using healthy food as a way to help people who don't have a home. I love the people - Jenn, Chef John, Chris, Ali, Meghan and team are so nice and fun to work with. I love learning new cooking tips from the chefs. And, yes, I love the convenience - it works well around my crazy schedule.

This Thursday, May 10th, Washingtonian's will converge on the (amazingly cool) National Building Museum for their annual fundraiser, 100 Bowls of Compassion.
