WabiSabi will offer six free Sunday brunches this winter through a collaborative project with the Youth Garden Project in Moab. The free brunches will take place each Sunday beginning Jan. 6 and continuing through Feb. 10 from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the Youth Garden Project, 530 South 400 East. The meals will be served in the historic Shafer home at the YGP site.

The brunches are made possible by donations from the community, local sponsors and volunteer support, according to a news release from WabiSabi. Everyone is invited to attend.

This is the seventh year WabiSabi has offered its Hands Up Sunday Brunches. In the past, each week’s brunch served 100 to 200 people across all ages and from all walks of life.

The Youth Garden Project lends its commercial kitchen to volunteer chefs who serve a variety of offerings – from pancakes, scrambled eggs and bacon to biscuits and gravy – complete with juice, tea and coffee. 

Holly Dinsmore, longtime manager of the WabiSabi warehouse, coordinates volunteer chefs, servers and dishwashers, procures food and orchestrates the meals, according to the news release.

“These brunches are something I look forward to each year,” she said. “These brunches are more than a meal. They are shared time between the larger Moab family.”

Dinsmore encourages everyone in the community to participate in the Hands Up brunch experience.

“Please join us this winter for a delicious meal and the warmth of community,” she said. “Hands Up is a chance for the individuals, nonprofits and businesses of Moab to unite in sustaining area residents and the community at large.”
