Saving Food Dollars with Loretta?

November 18th, 2009 by admin Leave a reply »

Today I had the pleasure of interviewing Loretta Ensor, who is the cook at the SouthEast Nebraska Community Action Center or SENCA. Loretta is responsible for the preparation of the congregate meals as well as the food delivered to the elderly through the Meals on Wheels program. It was a delightful interlude in my day!

If you are a user of food that came from a food pantry or you have food commodities; if you are able to use SNAP funds or funds from WIC to feed your family; even if you avail yourselves of Angel Food Ministries or just pinch every penny you can to save money on your food budgets, it’s important to learn the best ways to get that job done while still feeding your family a nourishing diet. We hope we can help with that.

Here’s hoping you enjoyed the chat with Loretta well enough to leave a comment here.   And if you enjoyed her interview, the chances are good that you will enjoy our sister sites: Mother Connie Sez, which deals primarily with health; The Healthy and Wealthy You, which is pretty much self explanatory; and Rapid Cash Review, which makes every effort to help you get some money into your coffers by sharing ideas about internet marketing programs.

    Nice job with the interview Connie…it is obvious that Loretta loves her job and loves the people that she cooks for.

    It is not easy task to plan, prepare and serve a large group of individuals everyday keeping in mind nutrition, taste and cost as well as presenting the meal in a friendly and caring environment. It sounds as if the South East Nebraska Community Action Center is blessed to have such a qualified and caring individual such as Loretta. Thanks for sharing her with us readers!

  2. Oh, isn’t Loretta WONDERFUL? Such a good person and so much fun to be around. Just what Seniors need in their lives! And those of us who are 33, too. grin

    Thank you for being such a faithful visitor, Rainy. You are the BEST.

    I am so dang proud of you. What an awesome interview. You look like you have been doing this for years. Loretta was very interesting to listen to and what a special person she is to be doing what she does. Great Job Connie.

  4. Oh, Kathy! Isn’t Loretta a love? It’s readily apparent she is in the right place for all the right reasons. One more thing to put on our list as we celebrate our blessings on Thanksgiving Day.

    You are on that list, as well, Kathy! Thanks so much for taking the time to pop by and comment!
