Cheddar and Chess   Heritage Tours   Haus von der Dahme

In the third quarter of 2018, we collected experiences and media for our first publication. We posted our personal snaps on Instagram as Haus von der Dahme (our living history household), so friends could follow along. 

Cheddar and Chess for Healthy Brains

Now, we combine our interests in history, artisan foods, and strategy games with our efforts to highlight and in some small way, alleviate food insecurity in the places we visit. There are many wonderful food provision organizations; however, quality protein is a challenging option due to the expense and storage requirements. Protein is, however, very important for brain health, and it keeps kids full longer, so they can concentrate on their schoolwork instead of their rumbly tummies.

Interested in Partnering with Us?
We are a mobile organization, holding events all over North Carolina. If you know of a group of children or teens facing food insecurity, who might enjoy learning to play chess or other strategy games while snacking on locally sourced foods (one-time or multi-day schedules are available), or if you have a venue in which to host games or sponsor a small fundraiser for the purchase of protein-rich snacks, please contact us. We would very much appreciate your participation and assistance.
