Ross Carper's half-time jobs as director of Feast World Kitchen and as director of missional engagement at First Presbyterian Church intersected with plans for Feast to cater the church's 32nd annual Jubilee Marketplace.
However, those plans changed as organizations began canceling events with the local surge in COVID cases in August.
With pandemic protocols in mind, it was going to be held for one day, in person, outdoors on Sept. 5—instead of two days inside in November.
Now organizers ask people to shop fair trade vendors online throughout the fall for back-to-school to holiday gift shopping. Links to fair trade vendors are posted at spokanefpc.org/jubilee-international-marketplace.
For five years, Ross has helped the church plan the Jubilee Marketplace. . . . .
