MESH CoChairs Aileen Grossberg and Lynne Kurzweil worked their magic with leftovers from the Selichot dinner. The tuna and egg salad filling was supplemented with more tuna, celery and onion and transformed into a hearty tuna/egg salad placed on fresh buns and pita with lettuce and tomato. Turkey sandwiches were also prepared to bring us to 30 servings which is our current weekly number of meals provided.
We added tomato and cucumber to the leftover tomato salad and more cabbage to the leftover health salad. A hummus cup and baby carrots were thrown in for good measure, along with pickles,chips, cookies, a water bottle, breakfast bar and fresh picked apples provided by Merrill and Andy Silver. A very hearty Grab N Go Bag for our hungry guests, to say the least!
Mr Joe Tyson, our favorite MESH staffer, picked up the bags at 4:45 pm accompanied by his lovely wife, Dorothy, whom I met for the first time.
For the next two Tuesdays which fall on Yom Tov, we will be ordering meals from local food vendors.
