Thanksgiving Outreach 2010 was an astounding success!! We served over 560 meals in 4 hours. That is a record!!
We could not have done it with all of our volunteers and supporters!! In order to serve 560 meals, you need a lot, and I mean A LOT, of food. 20 Turkeys, 14 Hams, 20 Gallons of Green Beans… Special thanks to all of the gracious folks at Hillside Methodist Church for opening their kitchen and hearts to all of the hours of food preparation. Marcia and Ted, we could not have done this without you!! To all the other volunteers, who came in for all of the thankless time in the kitchen preparing what was ultimately an awesome meal. Thank You!!
At the event, we were floored by all the outpouring of support. At first we thought we were overstaffed, but then the first wave of hungry mouths hit and the support team kicked into action. Everyone had a mission and that mission was fulfilled. A Special thanks to Christine, for rallying the troops in the kitchen and keeping the endless line of plates full.
To all of the recurring volunteers, thank you for your ongoing support. It means so much to us that you continue to take time away from your holiday to help out. For all of the new faces, and there were a lot, thank you and welcome to the Forever Fed Army. Hopefully, you see what motivates all of us. There is a definite need to help keep stomachs full in North Georgia and you can make a difference.
For all the volunteers and supports, thank you for giving on this day of Thanksgiving. You all rallied to the cause and made a huge difference. Please keep in mind that hunger is a year round problem and we can use your help. A sobering fact was that despite all of the food we prepared, we flat ran out of everything. There were a lot of hungry stomachs that day and every day. We can use any help you can provide throughout the year to attack the hunger problem. Thanks, again!!
