The Generous Servings Cooking Classes and Café is marking its one-year anniversary by giving back to the community with Sunday's Cook for a Cause.

"Generous Servings is all about generosity, so to celebrate our first anniversary, we wanted to find a way to give something to the needy while including our local community and having a really fun event," says owner Mary Brinig. "We partner with the Carpenter's Kitchen food bank to donate our extra food from the cafe and cooking classes, so we decided that we would invite people to join us in a cook-a-thon party to make as much food as possible to donate to them." 

Working from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Sunday, a crew of Generous Servings volunteers plan to prepare about 1,000 servings of chili and lasagna for the food bank; Generous Servings will also donate 50 percent of the café's proceeds for the day. 

Generous Servings provides "fun, hands-on cooking classes for both teenagers and adults, and private cooking parties," Brining explains. "We have a cafe in which we serve coffee brewed fresh to order and a great menu of pastries, breakfast foods, soups and salads, which are all made in our kitchen." 

This sounds like a great concept for a very good cause; I know I'll be there Sunday. Generous Servings is located at 3801 West 32nd Avenue.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
