MESH Report Nov 1, 2022

This week’s MESH meal was prepared by the efficient foursome of Sarita Eisenberg, Lou Hammerman, Gail Stock and Ian Stock with assistance from Ehud Klinger. It took only two hours to prepare and pack the food into bags, which were loaded on carts and brought downstairs to be picked up by MESH staffer, Joe Tyson.

The meal included barbecue chicken (or impossible burgers for the vegetarians), roasted potatoes and coleslaw plus a roll provided by Rhonda Silver and water. For dessert there were cookies (from Rhonda) and candy (from Ian and Gail). Gail and Ian also provided fruit – lots of it, enough for two apples and three bananas for each bag – and a breakfast bar.

This is such a rewarding thing to do. It’s also fun. Please consider signing up to help.
