Feeding the Hungry

I had the privilege of helping to cook and serve supper last night to a group of twenty or so men, women and children at a Catholic Worker house. David has been making sure “Waffle Wednesday” occurs there every month, carrying on a tradition his dad, Deacon Gordon, had begun many years ago. He invited me to help out.

Waffles, strawberries, whipped cream, syrup, ring bologna, peanut butter, milk, coffee was the fare. We had just enough waffle batter to do the job, with a bit of meat left over along with about 24 ozs of strawberries for the refrigerator afterward.

It was a wonderful experience sitting at table with the people. No one complained about the menu. All were hungry. Some mentioned it was their first meal of the day. Others talked about trying to find work. The volunteer staff welcomed “Deacon Bob” openly, and one of the guests invited me back.

God blessed me in many ways last night, thanks to these people.
