Food for thought, for people

    To the editor: We are seeking donations to purchase food for mobile kitchens being run by a coalition of Louisiana chefs coordinated by Yvette Bonanno of Bonanno's Fine Catering of Baton Rouge, a good friend of our daughter, Loren. We have personally spoken directly with people on-site in Baton Rouge. The chefs are volunteering their time and expertise to provide food relief at shelters in Baton Rouge. They are feeding both evacuees and relief workers. The mobile kitchens were functioning by Sept. 3. On Sept. 4, they provided hot breakfasts for six hours at Critical Care Unit in Baton Rouge and made and packaged 4,000 bag lunches for FEMA. Caritas Spiritist Center in Boulder, Colorado, is the not-for-profit organization handling the donations to make them tax deductible. Please know that there are NO administrative costs. All work is volunteer. One hundred percent of all donations goes to purchase food. Persons interested in donating should make their checks out to "Caritas" and write "Katrina Relief" on the check. Mail checks to: The Caritas Spiritist Center, 3775 Iris Ave., Suite 3B, Boulder, CO 80301. Include your address with your check, and a receipt for your tax-deductible donation will be sent to you. If you need additional information, please feel free to call us at 258-4620. Thank you. Marsha and Jonathan Talbot Warwick
