Roll up your sleeves and join SFA’s Skillet Brigade. Show SFA spirit in your community. Don’t think large scale; there’s no need to rebuild a storm-damaged fried chicken restaurant. Think smaller scale, and work with an existing effort. Serve lunch at a soup kitchen. Staff the hospitality tent at your local farmers’ market. Lend time and talents to the community food pantry.
Wear SFA buttons and gather fellow members to help. And be sure to take photos and write us about your efforts. We’d like to feature the Skillet Brigade on our blog, for others to see how we put our mission statement into action: To set a table where black and white, rich and poor, all who gather, may consider our history and our future in a spirit of reconciliation.
There are projects everywhere that need volunteers. For a few suggestions on where to get started, we suggest you check out the following links. And, when your group is ready to work, let us know so we can send you some SFA flair to wear while you work.
