Bringing Meals to the Table with #ShareTheTable and #JennieO

As the winter starts to bear down upon us, it’s so much more obvious how many people truly need a helping hand. It’s not just clothing, holiday toy donations or a warm place to stay.

One of the first dates I went on with my significant other of 13 years was a romantic dinner at the Pasta House Co. way back in the year 2000. Funny, now that I say that I hear Conan O’Brien’s voice replaying his famous “In the Year 2000” skit. Yes, it has been that long […]
