Thank you to Mark and Phanna and friends…

We are always struck by the incredible generosity of two of our most dependable supporters: Mark Kummerer and Phanna Pich! Last month Mark and Phanna, with the help of their friends (Gary & Dianne Wells, Marc Hopkins, Zach Povisen, and Jorge) donated a huge amount of clothing for students in need at the Serendipity Center.

Serendipity’s Screaming Eagle Hot Sauce is bringing the heat!

How HOT is our Screaming Eagle Hot Sauce?

You can be the judge… the 6 varieties of peppers include Jalapeños, Habaneros, Hot Paper Lanterns, Hungarian Hot Wax, Gatherer’s Gold and Stocky Red. If that list brings tears to your eyes, don’t worry, the last two varieties are sweet and should mellow out that heat a little!

Nicolas, our garden coordinator, started this project 5 years ago, giving students a chance to see how a real food product is grown, tended, harvested, produced, packaged, and consumed!
