MESH Report Feb 1, 2022

The mood in the Shomrei kitchen was as bright and sunny as the sky outside. Aileen Grossberg, with the expert help of Alex Kent, prepared a winter comfort meal for our MESH guests.

The take away bag was stuffed with an assortment of raw vegetables and pretzels with hummus for dipping, glazed meatloaf with baked beans, soft rye bread for those who might want to make a sandwich, 2 clementines, a piece of lemon cake and a snack bar. Appropriate condiments and a bottle of water completed the meal. The bag even contained a menu insert.

Be part of Shomrei’s Carole Starr Cafe and sign up to help create a meal for our food insecure guests.
