We had a great turnout of 525 for our first meal of the 2014-15 year. We grilled 320 hotdogs, 120 pounds of bratwurst, and 576 corn on the cobs, and cut up 15 large watermelons. Ten volunteers also came together on Tuesday morning to bake 16 cakes, chop up 40 pounds of lettuce and 36 cucumbers, and set up the dining room. All of our extra food is shared with the WAVI shelter or the Cornerstone Mission on Thursday morning.
It takes a church village to make these dinners happen, and new workers are always welcome. Just show up in the kitchen on Tuesday mornings between 9:30 and 12:00, or on Wednesdays from 1:00 until the last dish is put away about 8:00pm. You can also contact Karen Schleusener at firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up.
