This MLK Day, Monday, January 21, three Beth Sholom families honored Martin Luther King Jr.’s memory by cooking and serving a meal at the winter shelter for the homeless at St. Mark's Lutheran Church as part of a program organized by the San Francisco Interfaith Council.
The Buckwald, Darling Lempert, and Lempert Lopez Families (plus friend Tony) had a great time preparing the meal in St. Mark’s kitchen. On the menu was chili, mac-and-cheese, corn bread, salad--and a last-minute apple crumble (thanks, Naomi!).
Everyone, including the kids, pitched in--from shopping, to cooking, to serving the 65 men housed at the church that night as well as the shelter’s staff. A fun and fulfilling time was had by all the volunteers!
