One millionth meal
Marshall City Administrator Sharon Hanson joined Loaves and Fishes’ Executive Director Cathy Maes in serving a One Millionth Meal Golden Plate to Marshall dining site guest Bobbi Baerd at Christ United Presbyterian Church on Lyon Street in Marshall. Maes said Loaves and Fishes is marking one million meals served in 2018 by celebrating in Marshall, Aitkin and Minneapolis this week. In Marshall last year Loaves & Fishes served 6,967 meals at Esther’s Kitchen (Christ United) and 15,386 healthy meals and snacks to children at the Marshall YMCA. Loaves and Fishes expects to surpass those numbers at the end of the year. Meals are served four days a week at Esther’s Kitchen to anyone in need.
