Last Tuesday, we started our fifteenth consecutive season serving meals to the community in the hall of St Alban. As in past years, we had shut down for the summer months (we are basically open during the school year), but many people must have marked their calendars when service would resume as we served meals to 160 hungry people.
It was great to see familiar faces from past years and some people who are new. All were treated to a fine meal of pasta with meat or veggie sauce, caesar salad, garlic toast and a fantastic blueberry desert made from blueberries picked fresh that same day by Grace (one of the kitchen helpers) from the fields of Richmond.
The weather was fine and four people enjoyed their meal on the picnic table in the back garden.
A great start to the year and we look forward to serving many more fine meals to many fine people.
