On Wednesday, the 4th, 5th, and 6th graders, along with their teen and adult helpers and Safari Gold, cooked up a meal for 200 people at the Springfield Soup Kitchen. The 4th, 5th, and 6th graders chopped lettuce, green onions, cucumbers, green peppers, and tomatoes for a huge amount of salad. Teen and adult helpers sliced cantaloupes and watermelon. Safari Gold browned hamburger for sloppy joes. Working together, we made a meal for 200 in just 2 hours time and gained a new appreciation for those who cook for 200 people twice a week! To top off that meal, we had asked our parishioners to bring in pies and ice cream, and the desserts rolled in all morning! Pre-K even helped by baking pans of brownies.
Many thanks to all who worked chopping and frying and to all who donated pies and ice cream. A special thanks goes out to Catanzaro's for donating all the produce and to the family who donated all the buns.
