In Search of Speakers: The Sanibel Community House is looking to bring back its Community Social speaker series. If you are someone who likes public speaking and is knowledgeable about any of the following themes, contact us: local produce or food, cultural cuisine like Thai food or German food, or interesting travel food stories. We are also looking for Women leaders and changemakers for a Women Speaker Series. Email if you are interested.

Mangos Wanted: Chef John and The Community House are looking for your locally grown mangos. We use locally sourced ingredients for Kids Cooking Classes to teach kids delicious healthy recipes. Our chef also uses fresh fruit for our chutneys and salsas, which are sold to raise funds for SCH culinary scholarships. If you have a mango or fruit tree of any kind and are willing to share its bounty, even if you are not in town, please let us know. If you don’t have fruit to donate but would be willing to collect/pick the fruit, we would also love your help. Please contact us at 239-472-2155 or
