|Homemade meatloaf made with prime ground chuck from Phil's Uptown Meat Market.|
We needed to change our menu a few times today to utilize the food we had but the first 80 or so lucky guests got homemade meatloaf made with prime ground chuck donated by Phil's Uptown Meat Market. The local family-owned business has been generously donating to our weekly meal for nearly five years.
Later during the meal today, we changed to serving other specialties from Phil's — beef and chicken kabobs and barbecue and sweet chili ribs. The ribs especially create a lot of excitement whenever we serve them.
I am so grateful to Phil's for their generosity. It feels wonderful to be able to serve our guests such high-quality meat.
Here are a few pictures of our wonderful volunteers who helped make today's community meal a success:
|Amanda is famous for serving the soup in our dining room. When guests spot her outside of the meal they excitedly say, "Hey, it's the soup lady!"|
|Cheryl and Mary Ann made a lot of pudding for dessert today.|
|Mary is our salad server in the dining room. It's a hard job that keeps her moving on her feet for 2 hours straight but she always smiles and makes it look easy.|
