Operation Sack Lunch with the Beer View Mirrors October 13, 2010

Filed under: Team Works,Volunteer — seattleworks @ 8:53 pm

Greetings from Beer View Mirrors!  Our group headed off to Compass Center Men’s Program in Pioneer Square, who hosts the kitchen to Operation Sack Lunch.  We had the opportunity to prepare a fantastic dinner for approximately 50 people. Sack Lunch currently serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner, seven days each week to the homeless children, women, and men, who call Seattle their home. They prepare 17,000 meals per month in numerous locations throughout Seattle, and with only a handful of staff at Compass and the help of volunteers like us.  Our team helped to prepare a meal from scratch, no recipes involved!  It was a great team building activity, that gave us the opportunity to make a delicious and unique meal that was one of a kind.  We broke out into groups of 2-3 to create our meal consisting of a chicken stir fry with a side of root vegetables, salad, savory rolls and strawberry short cake for dessert.  What makes Sack Lunch very unique is that they use all organic food to prepare healthy meals for Compass.  Everything is natural, with no artificial flavors.  Overall, it was a great day!
