A walk in the park doesn't have to require actually going to the park, with all of its loud, stinky barbecues and wayward Wiffle balls. Instead, why not enjoy the park-like setting of Peachy Canyon Winery on Saturday, July 28, while doing something truly heartfelt for your fellow man? From 5 to 8 p.m., attend the first of three Wellness Kitchen S.O.U.L. Kitchen fundraisers buzzing with live music, wine, silent and live auctions, delicious food, and raffles. S.O.U.L. stands for "Seasonal, Organic, Unrefined, and Local," which supports local community growers (which is good for your soul, too). Bring lawn chairs, lay out a blanket on the grass, or join your friends at a picnic table. You'll be served a light dinner prepared by volunteers of The Wellness Kitchen. Plus, you can start the evening off with a glass of Peachy Canyon wine, which—unless you're super sneaky—is a big no-no at most public parks.
Donations and proceeds benefit the Pay it Forward meal program that provides nutritious food for those going through critical illness and financial hardship. The Wellness Kitchen and Resource Center is a nonprofit organization in Templeton whose mission is to provide nutritious food, culinary instruction, nutrition education, and support groups to those in need.
