I’m sure that most of you are following the horrible events unfolding in Ukraine. It has been an awful week for the people of the region and there doesn’t seem to be much to be hopeful about. However, instead of feeling completely helpless, I have chosen to contribute to the efforts of World Central Kitchen, which is already feeding war refugees at the border in Poland.
If you’re looking for resources to help, this page has some good links as does this one too. Plus, you can support the Kyiv Independent and their reporting as well as World Central Kitchen that is providing food for refugees.
On a personal note, although I have no current family connection in Ukraine, my maternal Grandmother was born there. Along with her entire immediate family, she came to the United States as a refugee during the last century. Up until this week, my strongest connection to the country was probably through Ukrainian food.
Thank you for this!
