Here at SEA, we have a long history of working with Teen Feed, our neighbor in the University District of Seattle. Teen Feed serves a hot, nutritious meal every night of the year in the University District to homeless youth. SEA provides a meal team anytime there is a 5th Tuesday in the month. Teen Feed and SEA share a number of clients who access both services.
Our most recent Teen Feed night was March 29 and the SEA Board of Directors took the lead on creating a menu, purchasing, cooking and serving dinner. SEA served spaghetti with meat sauce (or vegetarian) , green salad, rolls, fruit and chocolate cake.
“We served about40 youth that night and we were graced with gorgeous piano-playing (Beethoven’s Moonlight Sonata and other pieces) during dinner by one of the young people, which was a treat,” said Board President Cristina Gonzalez.
Thank you to our Board Members who volunteered, Cristina Gonzalez, Genn Zentz and Matthew Norman for organization, and our other volunteers Ian, Gene and Barb.
