NEWS FROM JULY 2018
During the first few days of July, the new dining room tile installation project was being completed. Then on July 6th, we got the go-ahead to move forward with cleaning and returning the dining room back to order so that we could resume serving our patrons fresh and hot meals again! Everyone was thrilled to return to a regular schedule with a delicious hot breakfast served at 8:00 am, and a wholesome hot lunch served at 11:30 am! In addition to the joy in returning to our routine, we were also all delighted by the beautiful newly tiled dining room!
On July 11th, the Light House Café was honored to receive the award for “Palm Beach Agency of the Year” at the Feeding South Florida “2018 Summer Hunger Ends Here Community Breakfast”. This annual event is designed to raise awareness about the issue of summer hunger in South Florida as well as recognize the dedicated Partner Agencies and volunteers who contribute so much to our mission. We are so grateful for Feeding South Florida and the many people who are dedicated to ending hunger throughout our communities.
Also this month, Tellus Products so generously donated multiple cases of paper plates to us. If you haven’t heard of Tellus Products yet, they are a brilliant business right here in Belle Glade, FL! They recycle leftover sugarcane fiber from the sugar milling process & convert it to packaging & foodservice products such as plates, bowls, & take-out containers!
In conclusion, July was another blessing of a month! Although we were unable to use the dining room for a little while with the tile being installed, we are so grateful to have still been able to serve 752 breakfasts, 1,143 lunches, and 745 “sick and shut in” plates this month! As always we are thankful to serve our Lord by helping his people. The Lord has truly blessed us.
Thank You for your continued support.
