Mother Marianne’s West Side Kitchen served 8,792 meals over the three-month period of May, June and July, Kitchen Manager Mike Pilat reported.
July saw a 337-meal jump over the previous month, with 3,151 meals served. That consisted of 2,206 adults, 693 senior citizens, and 252 children.
“The Boilermaker Road Race people have come by twice with produce from their Community Garden,” Mike said. “The fresh produce was very welcomed.”
He also was thankful that “Candella’s in Marcy has been generous with produce donations.”
Mike also noted a couple of other food donations:
• “Little Caesar’s Pizza baked on site on Sunday, June 12. Thirty small pizzas were made and given away.”
• “135 sandwiches from Compassion Coalition were distributed” the week of June 20.
