Several people have asked about inside eating. With the Covid  rules in place, it would take about 12 more kitchen volunteers to put the meal on the tables. Serving and cleaning rules are rigid and would require more help.

However, if you wanted to eat outside with friends, bring silverware, napkins and maybe tray tables. Lawn chairs can be  placed in the shade or between cars. Sit in the shade, eat and visit with friends. Trash buns and used container bins will be available.
