Christina Sauger dreamed of bringing people together through food, so she founded the nonprofit Harbor Dish, which provides healthy meals and companionship to anyone, regardless of their ability to pay. The mobile program hosts large-scale community dinners each week using a pay-what-you-can model. Some people pay the suggested donation amount, some don’t, and some pay for meals for those who can’t afford it. Diners are invited to a communal table, which is where Sauger is likely to be. In addition, a retinue of volunteers, including professional chefs, cook and deliver meals to residential facilities for foster children and domestic violence survivors and to homes of seniors and shut-ins—a program that multiplied exponentially during the pandemic.
