Week in and week out our dietary department serves great meals and takes care of our residents’ nutritional needs. You would think the last thing they would want to do on a day off is feed a large group of people. But on a recent Saturday afternoon they generously gave their time and resources to feed some folks in need of a good hot meal.
Jamie Avalla, our Director of Dining Services, led six of her employees to the corner of 12th Avenue and Madison where they served macaroni and cheese with ham, sweet rolls, dinner rolls, cherry pie, chocolate cake, candy, potato chips, soda, coffee, and water to over 250 hungry people. “We sang, laughed, and had a great time,” reports Jamie. “The people we served were all grateful and blessed us at every item passed to them. “
Thirty-two members of Jamie’s staff were involved in raising the funds to purchase the food. They generated enough money to do it all over again and another feeding mission is being planned for the near future.
