Two local businesses and long-time friends, Nocturne and The Preservery Foundation, a nonprofit focused on hunger relief started by Whitney and Obe Ariss, co-owners of the former The Preservery, are partnering to help end food insecurity in the Denver metro area this holiday season, through the winter months and beyond.Egg Noodles With Marinara

On Mondays and Tuesdays – when Nocturne is closed – The Preservery Foundation will use their kitchen as a meal production space to make hot, wholesome meals. With the help of their volunteer workforce, they will deliver those meals directly to people living without shelter throughout Metro Denver. Nocturne will also encourage guests to contribute to the Giving Meals program when making a reservation at the RiNo jazz supper club.

The Preservery Foundation is also working to raise enough money to be able to purchase Giving Meals from other restaurants on a weekly basis, in addition to the meals they produce themselves at Nocturne. They are also organizing volunteer help with meal production and distribution, so that folks can contribute their time, whether they are experienced in the kitchen or not.
