SOUTH LAKE TAHOE, Calif. — Although the smoke index was very high, 82 diners came to St. Theresa’s Grace Hall to enjoy pizza, salad and fresh fruit salad.

Normally the whole meal is cooked by the cooks at the B&B, but due to the high temperatures and smoke on Monday, a pizza from Pizza Hut was ordered, so the kitchen and dining room remained cool .

“It was good for us to come and serve the community in a different way,” shared Cathy Deering and Dana Jasmine as they represented the Barton Hospital Pharmacy Department in sponsoring the meal. “Rather than through medicine at the hospital, we were able to help the community by sponsoring a Monday meal with bread and broth.”

In addition to Cathy and Dana, fellow Pharmacy members Michelle Murphy, Hannah Sackett and Kim Stoker joined B&B volunteers to serve a hot meal on Monday, September 9.

Thank you to the Barton team for all their help in arranging the dinner and welcoming and warmly serving diners as they came through the service line.

“We really enjoyed meeting our fellow community members and seeing the joy on their faces,” said Cathy and Dana.

The Barton AAD team ended their sponsorship by helping with the teardown and cleanup of the meal. Congratulations to an energetic and warm team at Barton Pharmacy.

In addition to its Monday meal, Bread & Broth also serves community members a simple dish (chili, sloppy joes, etc.) and a delicious soup offered by various local community restaurants every Friday. This second meal takes place at the Lake Tahoe Community Presbyterian Church from 4:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. All members of the community are invited to enjoy the two hot B&B meals served every Monday (Monday Meal) and Friday (Second Serve).
