|Preparing cabbage for distribution
On the first Tuesday evening in February, Dignity/Seattle members and friends prepared several bins worth of cabbage for distribution to needy families in western Washington.

The work, if you call it that, was in removing the less appetizing outer leaves from heads of cabbage. Join us for the next volunteer opportunity on Tuesday, April 3rd.
