From Captain Lynne Kurzweil:

On the first day of 2019 we welcomed 18 guests to the Carol Starr MESH Cafe at Shomrei.  Uber Chef Aileen Grossberg planned, shopped and prepared a hearty meal of comfort foods to ring in the new year.  First course was Black Bean Soup with Cornbread Crackers, followed by Meat Loaf, Roasted Thin Potato Chips, Roasted Green Beans with a side of Coleslaw and pickles and home baked bread and spread.  Dessert was home baked Brownies, Vanilla Soy Ice Cream and Grapes.  The meal was totally enjoyed with seconds for all who wanted.

Stellar helpers included Lanny Kurzweil and most of the Lefkowitz family including Ben, Alex, Max and Vicky and yours truly.  Bonny and Joe trekked out to staff our Cafe which was not originally scheduled due to the holiday.  At Shomrei we knew we could pull it together.

About MESH:

The Carol Starr MESH Cafe at Shomrei (Montclair Emergency Services for the Homeless) is a cooperative effort between the MESH organization and local synagogues and churches.  Volunteers at each institution cook and serve hearty, nutritious meals for the hungry. Shomrei’s turn is on Tuesday nights. A good meal, and perhaps as important, social interaction and companionship offer respite to those who need it. Please help fulfill this crucial mitzvah by volunteering.

To sign up to help, go to shomrei.org/mesh.
