Church Lunch

One of the pleasures of my job is that I work in a church where there are a lot of volunteers who come in to help with various aspects of parish life, particularly in helping our mission ministry, which from fall to spring serves around 140-150 lunches a day, Monday to Friday.

While the mission ministry will be opening again next Monday, September 17th, the volunteers are already at work.  There is a lot of preparation that needs to be done before things start up again.  This includes, cleaning, sorting, packaging, etc.  Our volunteers though, are more than just a group of workers.  They are also a community that like to share laughs and meals with each others.  Often, one of the volunteers will cook a lunch for the others to share in(different volunteers will do this at different times), and occasionally I take the opportunity to join in with them.

Last week I had the opportunity to share in a meal of roast chicken, with rice and peas(a Caribbean staple), and salad.   Best of all there was homemade hot sauce to top it off.  It made for a nice relaxing lunch and conversation, much of which revolved around the gardening efforts of the various volunteers.  I left feeling well nourished in both body and spirit.  Below are pictures of my plate and the hot sauce.
