Today at 12 Baskets Cafe

I am the Director of Operations at Joplin Family Worship Center in Joplin, Mo.  We are a Resource Center created from the May 22, 2011 F5 Tornado.  We are still serving our community and it has been busy.

Jackie and Joanie on the line… May we take your order?

One aspect of our Resource Center is the opportunity to employ 20 workers in our Resource Center all from a grant program.  We could not do this work without them and they are a huge blessing.

Today at 12 Baskets Cafe we cooked up a storm.  We had pizza crusts donated and therefore I decided we would have, cook to order pizza for lunch today.

Lots of topings to choose from!

I have 5 kitchen  workers and they make a great team.  I plan the menus, buy the groceries, and do my best to use what we have on hand or has been donated.

We prepare breakfast and lunch each day and dinner when we have volunteer groups in.  We gladly feed all Tornado survivors, volunteers, and relief workers each day.

Each person was able to place their order and have their own pizza.

We used lots of take out boxes today.

FAMILY TABLE – Wednesday night church dinner

Each Wednesday night we prepare a meal for all church members to come have a nice dinner and fellowship before church.

Tonight on the Menu:


Mashed Potatoes

Brown Gravy

Green Beans with ham and onion

Salad Bar

Dinner Rolls

Carrot Cake with homemade cream cheese frosting

and Snickerdoodle Bars

Needless to say we had lots of full and happy bellies today.
