Setting the Thanksgiving Table with Cureate Courses and Baltimore Community Lending

With Thanksgiving now two weeks away, it’s time to start thinking about what you’ll be bringing to the table. The good news is that local small businesses participating in Cureate Courses, supported by Baltimore Community Lending through a grant from the University of Maryland Medical System, have just what you need to make your Thanksgiving special. So whether you’re cooking for the family, bringing a dish to a gathering, or enjoying an intimate evening at home, skip the grocery store and shop local for the tastiest options around.
