Dear Pastor Dan, Amy and all the wonderful volunteers and parishioners who loved on Our Place from Whitworth Church,
From the words of Margaret Mead, “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.”
Thank you all profusely for your hard work and efforts in making a tremendous difference at Our Place. When staff and clients and volunteers arrived on Monday, there were many comments of joy on all the great work that had been accomplished. The chain link fence was repaired, the pot holes were filled, the grounds were weeded and swept, the exterior of the building was power washed, the loading dock painted, the windows and molding cleaned inside and out, books organized, many, many bottles of laundry soap filled, potatoes gleaned and bagged, chili meal packs made and so, so much love, care and concern bestowed upon our ministry work with the poor. Thank you again for everything! I am in awe of each and everyone one of you, and the spirit of Jesus that shines through each of you. Such kindness!

Our Place Community Ministries is enthusiastic about our innovative new program and it’s creating lots of buzz and excitement from people throughout the city. Our festive and fun, “West Central Free Fresh Market” offers free fresh fruits, vegetables and breads to the working poor and underserved in a farmer's market style format coinciding with the weekly farmer's market in Kendall Yards just a few blocks away. We also offer lentils, beans, rice, oats and other nutritious staples. By providing fresh options in a fun atmosphere we are increasing exposure and hopefully a desire to include healthy choices in the menu.

At our outdoor fresh market, we present easy low-cost recipes, preparation ideas, food safety and even preservation in an informal atmosphere. We have plenty of samples on hand to try as well! We are drawing neighbors into conversations about incorporating nourishing, affordable foods with fresh foods as often as they can and to not be intimidated by preparation or scratch cooking. Our Place is bound and determined to increase access to the right kinds of foods for those who come, as well as providing later hours for the working poor.

As we all know, many of those who struggle in poverty have not had the opportunity to work with expensive fresh produce and shy away from the products. Our new market opportunity encourages, educates, and creates interaction for the enjoyment of fresh produce. After visiting our market, people may then go over to the Kendall Yards Farmer's Market and enjoy the wide array of live music and entertainment with their family. We are truly creating community.
