If you have been in the kitchen lately you may be blinded by the sparkle. The kitchen angels have been busy organizing and cleaning, and most recently, the kitchen and stove were professionally cleaned. Efforts have been made to insure that we are following proper food prep and washing procedures. We are investigating repairing or replacing the dishwasher. Donations towards replacement would be gratefully accepted! We have new tablecloths and when you are finished using them, place them in the black hamper, along with soiled dish cloths and aprons. The French cloths just need to be wiped down, dried folded and put back in the drawers. We are also trying an experiment in partnership with The Green Team. We are assessing our usage of plastics and paper products and we are going to try actual ceramic lead free coffee mugs for coffee hour. We already buy organic fair trade coffee from a special supplier to churches and non-profits called “Equal Exchange.” Thanks for everyone’s efforts to make St. Mary’s and environmentally conscious and humane consumer of goods. Rock on, kitchen angels!
By the way, you, too, can fly with us. Wings are available, all you have to do is sign up for coffee hour!
