Many of you started the day crossing off to-do items from the weekend, on a weekly call, or even by servicing a waiting customer. Our Camden Cares South Florida team serviced those waiting for a hot meal today at Life Net 4 Families of Broward county.
Camden Cares South Florida didn’t hesitate to join Life Net in their mission to be a seamless system of care in Broward County, to reduce the pain and suffering of individuals and families in poverty by providing necessary food, ancillary services and referrals once the opportunity presented itself. From what started as distributing peanut butter sandwiches, Life Net has grown and now provides more than 1.2 million hot meals per year.
Prior to opening the dining hall doors Becky, a Life Net regular volunteer gave us tips and information to make the day go a little smoother as we prepared utensils. Jaclene, Laura, Dianna, and our little Camden helper Vicky served up warm apple pie, pulled pork, meatloaf, rice, mashed potatoes and gravy, mixed veggies and more. After filling their trays with the Camden line servers, diners visited myself for a warm pastry donated by Panera Bread, Publix, and Whole Foods . Our Camden barista Scotty served hot cups of coffee with a smile. Johnny maintained the tables and refilling any beverages. Together we offered Dining Excellence.
The team fed more than 250 people within 3 hours.
Our Camden Cares South Florida team was thrilled to give back to our South Florida community.
