The Grateful Table goes with the flow in Roseville
Just more than a month and a half after opening their bakery and cafe, The Grateful Table in Roseville, Christine and Mary Robideaux say they are taking cues from the neighborhood on what to do next.
Christine says people want their chocolates and desserts on rainy days, so they plan accordingly. It's tough to find a good boxed lunch in the area, she says, so they started selling them.
In July, Megan Helmick and Shaween Lawrence, school faculty members and co-coordinators of the Roseville Area High School Food Shelf, received a $500 check from the North Suburban Evening Lions Club, presented by past Lions president Galen Britz. It was a particularly timely gift, Helmick says, because at the start of the school year, the food shelf needs all the help it can get, including donations of school supplies and toiletries. The monetary donation will likely be used to provide necessities such as clothing and food. (submitted photo)
As the school year nudges back onto students' and parents' collective radars — it begins Sept. 8 — school supplies and school clothes and other essentials need to be rounded up.
