Juniper’s Fare Restaurant – Feed Yourself, Feed Another: Meals with a Mission Juniper’s Fare in Waterbury, Vermont has been a sponsor of Everyone’s Child since 2010, providing a wonderful venue for fundraising events and a great meeting spot for supporters, and providing a place for us to display and sell African jewelry and other gifts. Their “Meals with a Mission” program works like this: every time someone buys a meal at Juniper’s Fare, a portion of the proceeds goes to EC, helping a child receive an education as well as a daily meal. We’re completely stoked about this because we know that it’s such a win win for everyone! Feed Yourself – Feed Another!
