I never ceased to be humbled when I'm cooking for the 'truly hungry'. I had the pleasure of prepping for our city's annual Thanksgiving dinner for the less fortunate, estimated numbers as high as 1,500-2,000. Got a LOT of experience peeling yams, carrots, and onions! Also got a chance to meet some equally generous volunteers, one being the president of the community college who shared a workspace with me. We are truly fortunate in this 'land of plenty'.
