MESH Report April 9, 2024

The sun shone brightly and spirits were high as our energetic volunteers prepared 50 take-away meals for our MESH guests. Working hard on chopping were Rabbi Julie and her sons Ilan and Rafael.  Always willing volunteer Susan Rosenblatt filled little cups with tartar sauce while Carole Rothman wrapped Italian rolls. Alex Kent got the main course ready for the oven.

The hearty meal consisted of a chopped veggie salad with herbs, a generous serving of fish fillets and sweet potato fries, a roll, a chocolate chip cookie, a banana and always a bottle of water. Included in the bright green bag was a package of cheese crackers for a snack .  Lou Hammerman and Sarita Eisenberg graciously delivered the 50 meals to the MESH site.

MESH always needs volunteers either to prepare meals every other Tuesday at Shomrei or to help serve and socialize with guests at the MESH site. Join us in helping the food insecure:
