Thanksgiving Day dinner at the Denver House for the homeless.

in photography •  3 months ago 

Thanksgiving Day was one last chance to feed the homeless turkey. We were able to meet at the Denver House, which gave us an inside place to serve for a change! The Denver House is a local non profit that received an old money house to use, but has almost no budget.

We actually have a dining room this time!

AND a serving room!

We had desserts donated:

And stack up a little while we get ready:

We blew some breakers, but got that worked out with some power cords:

Checking in at the Denver House before the feed started:

First time we had a coffee maker that wasn't running on our generators, smelled great!

The line begins forming:

Loading up the plates is an artform....

We had plenty of food, GOD plans better than we do!

They were coming in layered against the cold:

Some of our servers during a lull:

Two hours after we started, we found the end of the line:

Everyone had all they could hold, and we served about 200, not counting the seconds. It was slower than normal, because serving in a parking lot is a lot quicker, since it is so open. This was a lot nicer, even being slower.

The end of the day was a good tired, but I am glad we are past it, even though this is the toughest time of the year!

I think I will go home, and sleep for a week....
