Love Comes Through the Stomach

Nomination for the Heart & Dove Awards™ and Induction into the Love & Peace Hall of Fame™


Julie and Aaron Menitoff

…at least that’s what an old German proverb says.

You see, “back then” those traditional German women (and many others around the world) knew exactly how to make their family happy: they gave their best skill to prepare a delicious home cooked meal. And the world would always look a whole lot better after a comforting, perfectly seasoned dinner.

But today, we’ll talk about a different kind of cooking with love. And plenty of love is served by the master chefs and caterers, Aaron and Julie Menitoff.

Those two beautiful people went to North Florida to help prepare, cook and serve meals for victims of Hurricane Michael. The Northwestern shore was struck on October 10, 2018 by the third strongest hurricane on record to make landfall in the continental United States.

Food is always the first concern

Naturally, amid all the destruction and despair, a good meal would provide some sense of hope to those who lost their homes or businesses.

This Millennium had already its share of disasters and catastrophes, so any time someone steps up and inconveniences themselves to serve others, it’s definitely noteworthy.

Because not everybody is ready or willing to leave their own businesses behind in order to help others, Aaron and Julie deserve to be nominated for the 2019 Heart & Dove Awards. They are heroes who don’t think twice, they just rush to wherever there is a need. And hopefully, they have inspired others to jump in when the time comes…
