Yesterday was a very special day for us. We went to the local mission that feeds the homeless and helped prepare the meal and feed the hungry people who came in. Our church group volunteered to provide the food and make a meal for these less fortunate folks. We all contributed to the food that was purchased and then fixed the meal. We served baked chicken legs and thighs, French Fries, green beans, corn, and salad. We all made homemade desserts and brought those in as well. We fed approximately 100 people and then cleaned up by doing the dishes and cleaning the kitchen and wiping down tables, sweeping the floor, etc. This was such a wonderful experience I can't begin to tell you how much it meant to us. We felt like we got more out of it than the people who came in to eat.
These people were so appreciative and nice to us. We were so impressed by how many of them came up to us afterward and thanked us and told us how delicious the food tasted. My hubby and I talked about what stories each of those people had and what had caused them to be in a position to come there to eat dinner. It was certainly an eye opening experience for us all.
We felt so blessed to be able to help feed the people. We all decided that maybe we should do this on a monthly basis.
