451 meals served on April 20, 2013 at St. Joseph’s Soup Kitchen in Greenwich Village
Team MarJan were this week’s cooks and along with an incredible team of fellow volunteers, a tasty Chicken Tetrazzini was prepared. Creamy, hearty, and popular with guests is how the meal turned out. Salad, bread, fruit cup, coffee and lemonade rounded out the remainder of the day’s offerings.
A spicy vegetarian option was also available for guests, upon request.

An example of how awesome our volunteers are. This week at SJSK, there were kids on the soup kitchen line and they asked if there were any sweets or dessert available. Unfortunately, there weren’t. However, Rudy, the volunteer who was scooping the day’s entree overheard the request and bolted out to the nearest store to purchase chocolate chip cookies and snack size candy bars. The kids were happy to receive the treats and the remaining sweets were offered to other soup kitchen guests. God bless you Rudy for your thoughtfulness and compassion. We heart our volunteers!
