Every once in a while I'll remember to write about something that I'm so impressed with that I feel the need to share it with the world. Or at least with our listeners here in the Hudson Valley. And I am very impressed with the work done by Sparrow's Nest.

Sparrow’s Nest of the Hudson Valley provides two meals, once a week, to the families of caregivers diagnosed with cancer. Caregivers diagnosed with any cancer that requires chemo, radiation or surgery qualify. It was created in 2012, and has fed thousands of people since it began. According to founder Krista Jones, Sparrow's Nest is about providing homemade dinners to families who have no time to cook and giving recipients precious time to focus on their families. It is about giving these families some normalcy, when nothing seems normal at all.

All food is prepared by a team of volunteers in their Health Department approved kitchen in Wappingers Falls, NY.  If you would like to learn more about Sparrow's Nest, make a donation, or volunteer, visit their website.
