  3. Positive Community Kitchen Program

    Below is the link for the non-profit Positive Community Kitchen Program that has been in existence in Eugene for 5 1/2 years now. At PCK teens and adults come together under the support of a head chef to prepare nutritious, organic, gluten free meals for cancer patients (or others facing a life threatening illness) and their family members. For twelve weeks the client and immediate family members receive meals delivered to their homes free of charge. Each week they receive two entrees, two soups, a hearty salad and dessert.
    Contact PCK at 541-249-4942 to request further information, become a recipient of the program or to volunteer in one of many ways, including helping grow the food in our garden.

    Thanks, Fran Calciano

  4. Hi Village! PeaceJam is here again and it’s coming fast. If you’re not familiar with PeaceJam, we provide ongoing project-based peace education to schools and out-of-school communities throughout the Northwest, and each year we bring a Nobel Peace Prize winner to spend the weekend with young people at the University of Oregon. This year, our Nobel guest is Leymah Gbowee, who was instrumental in bringing an end to the 2nd Liberian Civil War. We have a one-day Junior Slam for 4th-5th graders on Saturday Feb 16th. JUNIOR REGISTRATION HERE: .The main event is a 2-day youth leadership conference for 8th-12 graders, with 7th graders welcome by recommendation. YOUTH CONFERENCE REGISTRATION HERE: If you’ve got young people interested in learning concrete peacebuilding skills from a world-renowned expert, this is a rare opportunity. There is still room, and to be frank, if we can’t increase our participation, this may be our last year of being able to offer it, so now’s your chance! Lastly, MS Gbowee will be giving a free public lecture at the U of O’s Straub Hall on Friday Feb 15th 6:30-8:30. All are welcome. Please email me with questions. With love and respect, Darren
