We are looking to our friends, colleagues and partners to aid us in getting the word out regarding a key piece of legislation, HB 3028, that supports working people in our community through access to an earned income benefit credit. This credit is referred to as EITC (Earned Income Tax Credit) and is set to expire by 2020; HB 3028 supports continuation and expansion of this benefit.
Last Thursday, MFS Hunger Relief programs held a Vietnamese cooking class at West Powellhurst, led by MFS Hunger Relief AmeriCorps member Thu Le, and two Vietnamese community members. They taught parents, students and volunteers how to make Vietnamese salad rolls and peanut sauce, sticky coconut rice, and a Vietnamese chicken and vegetable soup. 🥥🍲🍴
