Hearth & Table - October 3, 2019

Why are Hearth & Table meals produce-centered? Well, there are a variety of reasons: We strive to be vegetarian and vegan-friendly, for example. Quality and ethical meats can be unaffordable for many. And honestly, we like colorful plates of food!

Roasted veggies, beans & rice with vinaigrette, and fresh fruit platter

But most importantly: Students just don't often get the nutrition they need from the food they do eat. You don't want your body to miss out on these important vitamins and minerals.

Thank you to the nearly 20 diners with us last night - there was plenty more food, so bring someone new every week! When we have extra food, we send "takeaway" boxes home, so students walk away with a bonus meal as well.

2 yellow onions, diced

4 cloves garlic, peeled & sliced

1 t kosher salt

1 ½ C brown rice
