DRESS/ATTIRE IN DINING
It is summer and we will have some very warm days. We are
very fortunate to enjoy a wonderfully air-conditioned dining room that
allows us to be casual, comfortable and well covered. Please dress
appropriately for a soup kitchen - NO shorts, short skirts or revealing
necklines. Please remember: rubber-soled shoes are appropriate for serving.
No heels are allowed on the tile floor due to "slip potential" and liability
issues. Running shoes are perfect.
HECTOR IS HEALING WELL!
We want to note the amazing work that our Kitchen Supervisor, Mary has
accomplished this last month as Hector has been out recuperating from his
broken collarbone and subsequent surgery to repair the break. Mary and her
husband Todd (volunteering his time!) have truly stepped up to make sure our
program continues to run smoothly with no lapses whatsoever in service to
clients, although this means taking on all of Hector's work in his absence.
Todd has happily run plates back and forth to the kitchen, loaded the
dishwasher, manned the sinks and more! Please say "thank you" when you see
him! Mary has done the cooking, cleaning, stock organizing, and - with
me - whatever else needs to be done on a daily basis. Incredible kudos to them
Of course, all of our volunteers have also pitched in to help us
maintain our high level of service to clients. We thank all of you for your
adaptability and willingness to pitch in with extra help in this unusual
time. We are glad to say that Hector is healing very well and we expect him
back in the kitchen at Loaves and Fishes very soon!
