It’s not too early to start thinking about who you plan to invite to your home for Thanksgiving dinner, especially if you plan on inviting a bunch of people you don’t know yet. Raise money for local food banks by signing up to host a ThanksSharing dinner and inviting people who probably wouldn’t otherwise enjoy a home-cooked meal on Thanksgiving because they don’t live near family.

Use Seasoning, Help Team Jack

Buy some of the signature seasonings available from Big Red Restaurant and Sports Bar and help support the Team Jack Foundation, an organization dedicated to funding research for pediatric brain cancer. Buy at the restaurant or at select grocery stores and proceeds go to Team Jack. Choose between Buffalo Ranch, Parmesan Ranch or Molasses Bacon, or just buy all three.

Provisions Hosting Cooking Classes

Clayton Chapman’s Provisions in Midtown Crossing will start hosting cooking classes starting at the end of October. Some of the upcoming classes include Basic Knife Skills (10/25), Canning & Preserving (11/1) and Thanksgiving Side Dishes (11/8). Call for reservations or to ask about future classes.

Pizza Partnership

Godfather’s Pizza recently celebrated their 10th anniversary of their partnership with Boys Town, which explains why the Boys Town hotline number appears on the boxes for Godfather’s pizzas. Godfather’s also gives financial assistance to Boys Town and gives away a bunch of free pizzas as reading incentives to Boys Town students. This is a great example of a national company helping out an Omaha-based organization.
