From Captain Linda Ariel:
It was a hectic night at the Carol Starr MESH cafe this past Tuesday evening. We had 25 guests with two meals given as take out to people for whom we did not have room. Many of the people served have become familiar faces and responded to us at Shomrei with warmth and gratitude.
From Captain Alex Kent:
The Carol Starr MESH Cafe at Shomrei hosted an Asian cuisine night on Tuesday, giving a new life to some delicious Chinese food repurposed from the Beatles Shabbat last Friday night. The food had been graciously donated by Aimee and David Brooks. Chef Lynne Kurzweil whipped up her own carrot and ginger soup, topped with Chinese noodles and parsley, followed by crowd favorites beef with broccoli, sesame chicken, lo-mein, vegetables in brown sauce, and rice. The meal was completed with fruit salad, and black and white cookies.
From Captain Sarah Kravits:
JLC Night at MESH was a success! Captain Sarah Kravits, Cook Aimee Brooks, and Cook’s Helper Karen Greenwald put together a warm and filling meal for a chilly spring night, with the help of several excellent sous-chefs from the JLC. The first course was a flatbread with roasted mushrooms, peppers, and Mexican cheese. Next up was the main course of spinach lasagna, mixed green salad, and whole wheat challah rolls. The meal ended with ice cream sundaes, cookies, and brownies. Continue reading
From Captain Fern Heinig:
We had 21 guests visit MESH Cafe on the first Tues of 2017. They were very appreciative of a warm shelter from the cold rain and the menu prepared by Captain Fern and hard working volunteers. First time volunteers Collin and Aimee Brooks were ready to work. Collin prepared the salad and peeled almost all the eggs for the egg salad. He was also a world class waiter. The other members of the crew, Erin, Josephine, Zeke, Amalia, Gabby, Eve, and Sam were soux chefs, servers, and dish washers – everyone doing everything. Adrienne and Joe were the only MESH folks, so a hard evening for them. Continue reading
