Dining for Women on NBC Nightly News

Longtime readers know that I'm a big fan of Dining for Women, an organization that facilitates "potlucks for a purpose."

Women bring food to eat together, and donate what they would have spent on going out to dinner to an organization that, "reaches women at the grass-roots level while promoting self-sufficiency"  The combined donations from the 250+ Dining for Women chapters across the country can make a huge difference for an organization.

I had the privilege of meeting Dining for Women's founder, Marsha Wallace in 2006, when she invited me down to Los Angeles for an event Dining for Women sponsored, an evening with Wangari Maathai (how cool is that!). I interviewed Marsha for the Big Vision Podcast in 2007 and again in 2010, and have mentioned Dining for Women's work many times here on Have Fun, Do Good.

This week I was thrilled to see Dining for Women featured on the NBC Nightly News segment, "Making a Difference." You can watch the 2-minute video by clicking this link, or on the player below

You'll find information about starting, or joining a chapter on the Dining for Women site. In March, the chapter's donations go to another Big Vision Podcast interviewee, Women's Earth Alliance.
