A small group of Food For Friends volunteers served 100 meals on February 8, 2020 at the Ewing Annex Hotel on Clark street in the loop, Chicago.
For this event Food For Friends and Lee N Eddies catering joined together as sponsors. Thanks to Lee N Eddies for all they have done to support our mission. The food is always excellent and the smiles even better.
The section below is a recap email we received from Noah Lee, who has been our lead volunteer and server at Ewing Annex for the last few years. Thanks to Noah, his parents, Barb and Turner for serving at this event! You can see more pictures from this event at 2020-02-03 Ewing Annex Hotel
We had another successful serving event at the Annex Hotel on Saturday, February 8, 2020. We had a total of five volunteers, three from our family: Me, my mom June, and my dad John, with two more volunteers, Barb and Turner. Barb had volunteered at the Annex before, and Turner was new to the Annex events. The meal provided by Food For Friends consisted of Italian beef, fried chicken, meatballs, steamed vegetables, bread, mashed potatoes, Mac and cheese, and gravy, with cookies on the side. The men enjoyed the meal and a large amount of the group came back for seconds. We had more men than anticipated come, and we ended up running out of the chicken and beef even before people came for seconds.We look forward for the next time we can volunteer at the Annex. – Noah Lee
