GIVING BACK Feeling Blessed, George Bigler Cooks for Community, Informs
George dishes out delicious Taco Soup to the neighborhood.
In Time of Need, George Gets Cookin for His Neighborhood, LIVINGSTON, September 17, 2008 - George Bigler is a man who works hard for what he has. No matter, George takes a humble approach to his life and spreads the blessings by cooking for his subdivision and informing his neighbors of how to get rid of trees in their yards from Hurricane Ike. "I just want to spread the blessings. Most of us don't have electricity after hurricane Ike and times are tough, so I wanted to help by cooking taco soup for the neighbors and showing people a way to get rid of the broken trees in their yards". It was amazing to watch Bigler dishing out taco soup, and then eagerly showing people a way, with the help of FEMA, to get rid of fallen trees in their yards. George's wife, Carol and son Chad were happy to lend a hand. Neighbors gathered from all over Country Sunrise subdivision to get in on the good soup. "I just love to cook, so I figure, why not cook a neighborhood sized meal? With the information maybe the neighborhood will be cleaned up faster". "It's a win win situation, everyone gets some good food, and we get rid of broken trees faster". When asked if George would do a column of the Taco Soup in an upcoming installment of Cooking With George, George laughed and said "Yes, but on a smaller scale". By the end of the community event, neighbors were full, and George felt even better, "It's always more of a blessing to give rather than receive".
