Naper Settlement got in on the sharing sentiment with their Pass the Plate Program.
The commemorative plate makes its journey over a year, traveling to organizations around Naperville to connect the community together by sharing recipes and celebrations.
The plate was first passed at the Martin Mitchell Mansions 130th birthday, when it was given to Stephanie Penick, longtime Naperville resident and publisher of Positively Naperville. Her treat? Cupcakes from DeEtta’s Bakery.
“Its wonderful because each one of the reasons that the plate has been passed is a great one, and the online recipes are fun but even the stories of the recipients and why it is that they gave to the next organizations who is celebrating their anniversaries,” said Nancy Smith, Director of Learning Experiences at Naper Settlement.”
Currently, the plate resides at Naperville Cares, who is making a dish to celebrate their 15th year anniversary. They were given a healthier meal of quinoa and black bean salad.
Naperville cares also announced a new agency endowment fund at the DuPage Community Foundation which will help develop a planned giving strategy.
