Our First Catering Job

This past weekend we had an opportunity to use our conference and retreat center in a different way. We have been slowly using the building to host both work teams and smaller local camps/retreats and that has been great… but what else can we do?? Veronica, our amazing cook, caters events as side a business. We had been talking for the last couple years about not only hosting groups but what it look like to use our kitchen to cater to outside events. Well, this weekend we were about to provide our catering services for a funeral. It was the first time we had done something like this. We cooked and delivered 330 meals and were able to employ 8 people for the day including two boys from the Knockpatrick school who were in need of on-the-job experience for a certification. Events like this will help us become self-sufficient, create jobs, and help us continue our work. Check out some pictures from the event.
