Food has an interesting way of bringing people together. Whether it’s around a dinner table, a fund raising banquet, or at a soup kitchen, food connects us. However, it’s not just the “eating” part of food that can build friendships. We have recently discovered that even shopping for food can build community. For example, here is our favorite grocer, McClain. We’ve known McClain now for about a year, and he completes the grocery shopping experience. We wait in his lane even if others are open. He welcomes us with a friendly smile, joke, or tip on which musical artist to check out next. If you’re in the Kansas City area, shop at Cosentino’s Downtown Market, and find McClain. He’s not just a grocer, he’s our friend. Who’s your McClain?
