After the big feast of yesterday, there were a lot of dishes to clean up. Many of us have used dishtowels made of feedsack over the years, but this week we’ll feature feedsacks with dishes, cups, saucers, plates, etc. printed right on them.
But before we get to that, by way of being thankful ourselves for everything that we have, I want to announce our Feed America feedsack give back. For every feedsack that we sell here at Sharon’s between now and Christmas day, we will donate $1.00 to Feeding America, the network of food banks that helps so much to feed the hungry people of our country. The need is greater this year than ever, and I hope we’ll be able to contribute a lot.
Many of the dishes printed on feedsacks appear to be more decorative than utilitarian, but then who wants to look at dull dishes, pots & pans?
While some are shown set on a table, others are apparently on display.
And some are clearly more appropriate for just beverages, rather than a whole meal.
That’s our selection for this week, now that all the dishes are washed, dried and put away we’ll just be thinking about getting ready for the next feast. And we hope you’ll think, when you think of feedsacks, about feeding those who are less fortunate. Make a donation that matters to your local food bank, soup kitchen or shelter.
