|Our super sandwich assembly line. Thank you Gwen, Micah, Sam and Ian!|
"They all love the sandwiches," said volunteer Carol who serves in the dining room and is always great about giving us feedback in kitchen. The sandwiches did look pretty darn good with the fresh tomato and avacado and a generous portion of sliced turkey breast. Alongside the sandwiches we served cold watermelon, cantaloup and potato chips. We also offered soup, salad and dessert — a full four-course meal.
|Our wonderful dining room volunteers today included Judy, Carol, Lucy and Maddy.|
One of our regular guests today asked me if I could possibly give him meals to take to two friends. "They really wanted to come today but they found a shady spot and don't want to lose it," he said.
I told him I would and said that I have noticed we haven't been as busy lately.
"That's because it's too hot to walk far," he said. Two men near us overheard and nodded in agreement.
My hope is that the shelter, hospitality and meal that we served today at least helped cool and comfort those who were able to join us. We served 260 meals today.
