Chef Lynne Kurzweil planned a simple, nutritious and tasty meal for 50 with the able assistance of Shirley Grill, Susan Rosenthal and Carole Rothman. Main course was panko crusted tilapia served with sweet potato fries and semi-homemade coleslaw. Accompaniments were Italian bread, bananas and a water bottle. Dessert was provided by Collin Brooks which included a yummy Oreo Cakester and cookies. Our team worked seamlessly and happily, prepping and packing in three hours. That’s pretty good for 50 home cooked takeaway meals, including cleanup! Best part was we chatted away the entire time. Lynne and Susan transported the meals to The Office where they were happily received.
Shomrei is providing 50 MESH meals on the 2nd and 4th Tuesdays of each month. We need helpers to prepare and pack for November 28, December 12 and December 26 and then into 2024!
Volunteers are also welcomed to help serve at the MESH site, 619 Bloomfield Ave, Montclair- the site of the former Office Restaurant. MESH provides dinner 6 nights a week, Monday through Saturday, 4:30-6:30 pm.
