• Melissa Navarro-— prepares a weekly meal & gathering for college student athletes that don’t live close to their homes

We’ll be listening beforehand to “For the Love...” of Food, Episode 5: the Tribe at the Table, which can be found in a Podcast App or online at: http://jenhatmaker.com/episode-05-the-tribe-at-the-table. (*FYI* This is a longer podcast.) We will meet at WCC on Monday, January 13th from 7:30-9:00 p.m. in the Care of You Room, which is located in the Gym. Feel free to come in your cozy clothes.
