Mother’s Kitchen: Tuesday Meals
Every Tuesday evening, rain, snow or shine, we gather at the First Parish Church in Harvard Square, to assist in serving the homeless. We arrive around 5pm and leave around 7:30. We may help with some last minute food prep, sit at the door to welcome the guests, join the kitchen crew to dish out soup, help with plating, and wash the pots and dishes or join Patience, who manages the floor crew, and help serve the meal. And if you do one job one week, you are welcome to try something else next week. You will be on your feet most of the time, so wear comfortable shoes. Also if you play piano and would like to come serenade us, feel welcome. There is a piano in the dining hall and you may find the guests singing along!
The very hospitable and sweet atmosphere at the Church makes this a wonderful volunteer activity. But beware, just like Lays Potato Chips, if you do this seva once, you will definitely be back again!
Harvard Square is easily accessible by bus and by T and the big white church, on the corner of Mass Ave and Church Street, is directly across the street from the Harvard Square T stop. If you are driving in to the Square, please plan to arrive a bit before 5:00 pm. People will be leaving from work around 5pm and on street parking in the Square is pretty easy to find. If you come later, it may be possible but it will be more challenging.
If you are planning on coming, give Pam a call at 339-224-1725 and we will keep a heads up for your arrival.
