Another thing to remember is that even after the first couple of weeks, things are still not normal for those in mourning. And particularly for those who’ve lost a spouse or parent, gifts of food are generally still quite appreciated long after the initial deluge. I’m having a bit of a challenge in that one friend is primarily a raw vegan (going to have to do some research for that) and another friend has some of the best food in the city ostensibly any time he wants it.
There are ways to support your friends besides sending food, of course. Memorials are a great way to pay your respects and help others at the same time. To help continue the legacy of Jay Luther, his family and friends have set up a scholarship fund at the Randy Rayburn Institute of Culinary Arts at Nashville State Community College.
If you would like to donate, please send checks to:
120 White Bridge Road
Nashville, Tennessee 37209
Make checks payable to the NSCC Foundation and note on the check “Jay Luther Memorial Scholarship” to ensure the funds are directed properly.
