Great Volunteers

We didn't have as many volunteers as usual at The Wednesday Community Meal today but it all worked out thanks to a small but great group of people. Together we served 405 meals during our two hour service.

Guests today were treated to entrees of roasted pork loin, turkey breast, enchiladas, salmon, baked potatoes topped with chili and cheese and pizza. There was also soup, salad and dessert. We had just enough food for everyone who came to our door.

During most of the service, there was a line to get inside and we were so busy that by the time our doors closed at 1 p.m.,  I realized I had forgotten to snap any photos. So, at the end of our service, I  asked a few of our hard working volunteers to pose for me...

Fred puts in more volunteer hours than anyone.  He organizes all of the gleaning for the meal and does much of the gleaning himself. He also attends all of the organizational meetings and manages the dining room. I love working with him.

Ava and Jack are fun and so capable. Ava was in charge of desserts today and Jack worked in the kitchen plating food.

Dan works with Dean each week serving coffee, hot chocolate and tea in the dining room. It's not easy work and keeps him on his feet for a solid two hours straight. He is a dedicated volunteer and I don't know what we'd do without him.
