“My grandmother, Odessa, taught me the importance of hospitality from a very young age. She told me stories of the lavish dinner parties she would host at her home in St. Louis Missouri and by watching her I learned how to craft a thoughtful experience with attention to details. In the south we have a saying, ‘strangers are just friends you haven’t met yet,’ so I look forward to meeting you at the next PINE gathering.”

"As a Southerner and a Francophile, I've always felt the crux of Community is conversation- preferably over a long meal. For me community is a safe haven where people can come together to have both the difficult conversations that lead to societal change and personal growthas well as the intimate conversations that create life-long friendships."

"There is a connectedness in Community that brings overwhelming strength to people when they need it the most. Community creates togetherness, support for shared values and truly comforts the soul. My favorite way to create community is by way of food and sharing a meal together with a good bottle or wine or two."
