Novelty Hill – Januik Helps Feed the Hungry
Throughout the month of April, Novelty Hill – Januik winery will donate 100 freshly prepared meals each Wednesday to Hopelink, a Redmond-based social services agency. Winery chef Aaron Grund will prepare the meals each week.
“Our community has been incredibly supportive of us through this difficult time. We wanted to find a way to help our neighbors, and our chef wanted to be a part of that,” said Januik. “At its core, wine is about bringing families together around the table. This is our way of paying it forward.”
Hopelink has served homeless and low-income families, children, seniors and people with disabilities in north and east King County since 1971 by promoting self-sufficiency for all members of the community and helping people make lasting change. “The past few weeks have reminded all of us that we live in a very generous community, and this gesture is a perfect example of that,” said Hopelink CEO Lauren Thomas. “As we continue to see increased demand for food as a result of the COVID-19 crisis, the Novelty Hill – Januik donation will help Hopelink continue to support families and individuals during this difficult time.”
