MESH Report May 31, 2022

The MESH team of Grossberg, Kurzweil and Rosenblatt did it again. With no one signed up to create this week’s MESH meal, coordinators Aileen Grossberg and Lynne Kurzweil stepped up with the help of ever reliable Susan Rosenblatt.

Thanks to some delicious leftovers from the Brooks family Shabbat dinner and rugelach from Marc Grossberg’s birthday celebration, the takeaway bags were full to bursting.

The kitchen smelled wonderful as the meal of cole slaw, warm, fluffy  pita bread, chicken shawarma and tilapia with shawarma spices, roasted veggies with carrots, roasted potatoes, cake and cookies and a banana was prepped and packed.

As always, the meal was supplemented with a breakfast bar and bottle of water.

As we enter June, the MESH year is almost over. There are still openings on the schedule for all or part of a meal. It’s easy to help out.

Questions: contact Lynne or Aileen.
