Another Amazing Meal

the hard-working kitchen crew from one of our sites:
  • peeled 150 pounds of sweet potatoes
  • peeled 10 pounds each of carrots, onions & celery
  • peeled 50 pounds of potatoes
  • prepared 60 pounds of meat
  • oh yes, and let’s not forget 50 pounds of turnips.
THAT was another great meal,
prepared at one of our Hamilton Out of the Cold sites.
