The Food Truck
Common Grounds: A Taos Teen Co-Op and Café is “going live” with its food truck operations at the Big Barn Dance, Sep 9-11!! (And we may need some logistical help doing it.) We’ve been working for a long time to fundraise for building renovations and start business operations. The hard work has paid off! Teens who initially came together in late 2016, to comfort each other in tragedy, while questioning faith, started living to help each other and others. My prayer for these young folks started all those years ago: “Answer me when I call, my saving God. When troubles hem me [them] in, set me [them] free; take pity on me, hear my prayer.” Psalm 4:2
Many thanks go out to the following Adult Allies for helping to get the Food Truck ready, and a menu planned for our first big effort: Laine Overley (108 Roving Food), Michael Ninneman, Jennifer DeBow (Mondo Italiano), James Jenison (NM Enironmental Dept.).
And many thanks to our other Adult Allies: the fabulous adults at St. James Episcopal Church, who are brave enough to let their faith guide them in giving us the space to figure out who we are in this complex world, and help our peers do the same; Luis Reyes and the Board of Trustees at Kit Carson Electric for seeing the vision and patiently waiting for us to raise the money needed to get the building renovated for use; the folks at Taos Academy for letting students earn class and elective credit to work on this project; Florence Miera (Taos Municipal Schools Homeless Liaison); Gary Buff, Miles Bonney, Wes Patterson and Stacy Quinn, the folks at Taos United … and a host of others who have believed in us and this project!!
