Meet our dedicated July volunteers of the month. The group is from Beth El Synagogue and has been preparing and serving the meal on the fourth Wednesday of each month for 28 years! The group’s specialty is tuna noodle casserole. Group leaders Debbie Daren and Scott Zelken have participated for the entire 28 years. They were inspired by a talk given at the synagogue by Laurie Bellinger, one of the founders of the Meal Center. In addition to the leaders, the group includes David and Lily Fryburg, Ellen Adler, and Barbara Sahagan. The group came together to help give back to the community and to lead by example to the younger generation.
Many thanks Scott, Debbie, Barbara, David, Lily and Ellen for your dedication and service to the hungry of the New London community, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic.
