Grace was said by member Bonnie Mitchell:
“We give hearty thanks for the food we are about to eat. We are grateful for the bonds we create and nurture through eating together and sharing; bonds which strengthen us to work with our sisters for those who have less. We thank that which is greater than ourselves for the love and loyalty of friends old and new, far and near and for our hands joined in peace around the world.”
