The Ottauquechee Health Foundation shares warmth, food and fun this holiday season

QUECHEE—The Ottauquechee Health Foundation offering two free community-focused events offering  multiple opportunities for community members to help those in need while at the same time offering some fun and food as a means of relief during the pandemic.

Sharing the Warmth is an community knitting event inviting the community to share the warmth by creating hats, mittens, and scarves for people in need. The items will be given to children and adults at various sites, in the Foundation’s nine service area towns. Knitters and crocheters are asked to provide their own yarn. This event runs through Dec. 30, and will have multiple collection days including Saturday, Dec. 12, 1-2 p.m. and Wednesday, December 30, 9-10 a.m.

“OHF wants to ensure that everyone has access to warm clothing, and this is just one small way we can do just that. We have already collected over 90 items to distribute, but the need does not stop there – we want your help to keep the warmth going.,” said the OHF’s Executive Director Tayo Kirchhof.

The second community event, Share the Food and Fun, invites community members to a tasty community cooking event. Claire Mayock from Heart Rock Kitchen in Woodstock will demonstrate how to make Buche de Noel, a Yule log cake, with meringue mushrooms. The class will be held on Sunday, Dec. 20, from 3-4 p.m.

The recipes will be shared prior to the event. The demonstrations will be pre-recorded, but presented live. There will be a question and answer session after the presentation with the chef’s available to share cooking techniques and answer questions.
