In support of the community-building organization Time Dollar, Les Dames d’Escoffier will sponsor its first annual Plant & Bake Sale on Saturday, May 12, from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. at the Time Dollar Community Connections agency, 2806 W. Salinas, on the city’s West Side.
Launched in 2001, Time Dollar works toward bringing sustainable change to their communities by building trust and communication among neighbors and increasing community involvement.
With support from a number of sources, the 501 c 3 nonprofit offers programs teaching gardening, healthy cooking, math tutoring and more. Time Dollar Community Connections’ mission is to help San Antonians with essentials they need in exchange for work or a service they perform.
Les Dames is an international organization, whose membership comprises women in culinary careers, from book authors and chefs to public relations professionals and women who own farms or ranches. Les Dames has supported Time Dollar since 2009 with donations to its community garden, square-foot gardening and food for distribution as a Food Bank satellite.
