Volunteer Appreciation Lunch

Volunteer Appreciation Lunch

Yesterday, we held an appreciation lunch for our Thursday Lunch Program volunteers. They do so much for us throughout the year – everything from greeting, to setting up the rooms and tables, cleaning and putting away dishes, making coffee and tea, baking treats and desserts, and of course preparing the sandwiches and the meals we serve to our guests.

Yesterday, our volunteers themselves were treated to a meal that was graciously made Jim Winn. The menu featured:

Cream of Tomato Soup
Chicken Chili
Potato Chickpea Curry
Oven-roasted Green Beans
Green Salad 
Blueberry Pie
Assorted Desserts 

We also want to thank Hastings Withers for organizing the lunch for everyone!

Thank you again to all of our lunch volunteers who help make Beach United so welcoming, and for helping feed our community all year-round 🫶
