MESH Cafe was open for business last night with 23 guests inside and three additional guests outside whom we supplied a meal under the stars.
The wonderful meal prepared by Carolyn Lack and Barbara Lesser was:
orange cauliflower soup with croutons
panko crusted tilapia
pasta with roasted red peppers
pumpkin cake and oranges
There were also absolutely scrumptious home-baked challah rolls prepared by our JLC families.
I am very happy to report there were no leftovers
Our volunteers came out in force last night. We had first timers Carla Greengrass and her daughter Alli. Noa and Alex joined us once again. MESH chair Lynne Kurzweil also helped in whatever was needed.
This was my first time working with the new MESH staff. A Shomrei welcome to Adrienne, Bonnie, Talia and Cindy. Devlin is back providing security.
The MESH staff did tell me that Shomrei is MESH’s favorite cafe, providing delicious meals in a warm and friendly atmosphere.
Yasher Koach to all who feed our guests a warm meal in an emotionally safe envoirment.
