Breaking bread in your neighborhood …

Another community meal coming up is Lunch at the Crossroads, at noon Friday at the Grass Valley United Methodist Church on South Church Street.

Soroptimists help feed seniors …

Jeanne Whitten, the Soroptimist International of Sierra Foothill’s Health Committee Chair, presented three $1,500 grants to local non-profits – Gold Country Community Council’s High Noon Nutrition program, KARE Crisis Nursery and Interfaith Food Ministry – on Feb. 11.

After the grants were given, each program spoke about how they would be used to promote the health and well being of woman and children.
