Better Than Too Little

Sixty-five (65) people were waiting at noon for the free hot lunch. We had made ten trays of lasagna in anticipation that there would be 100 diners, like last December. But we needn't have worried that there was too much food. Many returned to the table for second and even third helpings. 

Safeway donated 15 loaves.
What the guests lacked in numbers they made up in appetite, and only a few loaves were left to take to the Catholic Workers House, where all leftovers are welcome.

Perhaps the heavy rains over the weekend kept the crowd away (though the clouds parted on Sunday). We'll still plan on serving 100 next time, though. Better to prepare too much than too little.
