A new food program at Xatśūll made 150 meals a day in the first two days (Nov. 26 and 27), says Natural Resource Manager Edna Boston.
“I decided to do the food program because there will be no Christmas parties for the community and I think it’s only fair that we do something for the community,” she says. “When I explained why we’re doing it, because we can’t have Christmas parties, they were ever so grateful.”
There’s a door prize draw every day the kitchen is open.
Laura Smith and Krista Phillips were thrilled with the idea when Boston approached them, she says. Smith is an experienced chef and is training Phillips.
Boston thinks the number of meals made might still go up further as well.
On Nov. 26, they made lasagna, garlic bread and salad and on Nov. 27 it was beef stew and a bun. Next week will be soup and sandwich on Thursday and Friday will be tandoori chicken with Greek salad, she says.
There’s no charge for the meals with the program running for the next two weeks (Dec. 3, 4, 10 and 11).
