In Honor of Dr. Martin luther King Jr.: Life's Most Persistent & Urgent Question: ‘What Are You Doing for Others?’
As we prepared to commemorate the life and achievements of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. last month, we were reminded of his famous words, “Life's most persistent and urgent question is: 'What are you doing for others?'" King’s eloquence and powerful ideals have been preserved through his many speeches, but this quote in particular resonated with our team. We kept asking ourselves, “What can we do for others?” To honor the idea espoused in Dr. King’s quote, we partnered with Project Open Hand, an organization dedicated to eradicating hunger in the metro-Atlanta area. Open Hand prepares, packs, and delivers over 6,000 healthy meals each day to those who might otherwise go without food. The people who work there
believe that everyone deserves access to proper nutrition regardless of their age, their home, or their health conditions. All of their volunteers and staff work as one, giving as much of their hearts as they do of their time. They energize and motivate those we serve, all the while fulfilling something deeply personal in their own lives. Their board of directors is dedicated to their mission and passionate about growing the organization to reach more people and make an even greater impact on our community. In the days leading up to Martin Luther King Jr. Day, we volunteered to prepare and deliver meals to ensure that locals in need could have meals over the holiday weekend. It felt great to work Ingredients • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour • 3/4 cup sugar • 1/4 teaspoon salt • 2 sticks unsalted butter, cold and cut into 1/2-inch cubes Directions 1. Heat oven to 375 F. 2. In a mixing bowl, combine flour with sugar and salt. Add butter and combine using a mixer at low speed, until butter breaks down into small, crumbly pieces. Increase mixing speed to medium and mix until butter and flour clump. 3. Add egg yolks and vanilla extract to bowl, return mixer to low, and mix until dough congeals.
with such an altruistic and compassionate organization, and we look forward to volunteering with them again next year!
