A Fresh Coat of Paint at the Soup Kitchen

The soup kitchen received a little sprucing up when staff and volunteers painted the walls this past week. Food pantry volunteers Debbie Robertson, Debbie Shoup, and Tom Lieb helped Catherine Simon, Soup Kitchen and Food Pantry coordinator, along with ministry assistant, Sister Valerie Luckey as the previously white walls disappeared into a calming blue.

“I asked staff members and some volunteers to vote on three colors, and blue was the overwhelming favorite. Once we saw the finished kitchen, we loved the way the color made the artwork on the walls come alive. Now we have to wait until our guests can safely join us again indoors so they can enjoy it, too. We are excited for that day,” Catherine said.

These dedicated volunteers also re-painted Emmaus Food Pantry over Memorial Day Weekend.
