The Community Noshes For Berkshire South
Rachel Louchen reports from Great Barrington. The community came out to support a great cause on Thursday, February 27, at the fourth annual Taste of Community hosted by Berkshire South. The event raised funds for the Community Supper Program, which serves a free weekly meal to members of the community, providing a helpful service to low-income families, senior citizens unable to cook for themselves and others. Guests at the event had their choice of treats from some of the best food purveyors in the Berkshires, including Haven Cafe and Bakery, Castle Street Cafe and Big Elm Brewery. The program (established in 2009), as well as the evening’s event, are successful due in no small part to the tireless efforts of board members, volunteers and local restaurants, who donate food and their time. The free Community Dinner is held on Mondays from 5 to 6 p.m. At left, Berkshire South Executive Director Jenise Lucey with member and ambassador Aimee Raifstanger.
