We have a growing group of younger Food For Friends volunteers that successfully executed another successful serving event at the Ewing Annex Hotel on September 17, 2016.
We had a total of 6 volunteers, which included Barb Gaona, Kurt Lannefeld, Ian Schlueter, Lizzie Schlueter, and Adam Szymanski. Those volunteers served about 75 hungry men who proceeded to eat almost of the food!
It was awesome connecting with some familiar faces as well as meeting many new people, all happy to see our group and grateful for the hot meal we provided. Since we’ve started to serve at this location more consistently, it seems like the flow of prepping and serving has improved a lot. We’ve also been able to feel the connection between the men at the annex and our group grow each time we are there.
Thanks again to the volunteers that participated! We look forward to continuing to serve at the Ewing Annex and spreading God’s love.
