Our annual Easter Dinner is just around the corner and there’s a lot of preparation taking place in our kitchen! We expect to serve more than 2,700 holiday meals to people who are homeless or hungry and have nowhere else to go on Easter Monday April 17th. Our hope – and our goal – is that anyone in need is taken care of and given a special Easter dinner.
Our kitchen is a busy place all the time, with an average of 1,307 meals served every day. But on holidays like Easter we make an extra effort. The dining room is decorated, our generous donors have written their greetings on the placemats that will be used on the day, 2,400 pounds of roast beef and all the trimmings are being prepared, and the many volunteers who will be serving meals throughout the day are ready to roll.
It’s always so gratifying to witness how much events like this mean to the people who attend. There is a special feeling of joy in the room – a feeling, for many, that means they matter – that they have not been forgotten.
So, at this blessed time of the year, we extend to all of our donors and volunteers our deepest gratitude for your support – at Easter and throughout the year. We thank you for bringing good food, fellowship and hope to so many.
