Southwest Regional Fellows Take Part In Soup And Service


Vice President Peter Maiurro and fellows Libbey Davis and Jeff Hopfenbeck prepared and served food at the Manna Soup Kitchen in Durango on a recent trip to the Southwest Region. They joined forces with local volunteers and the mayor of Durango to put together a lunch for more than 100 people. The soup kitchen provides breakfast, lunch, and additional sack lunches prepped by an all-star chef, as well as shower, laundry, and medical services. The El Pomar staff members were excited to tour the two organic gardens, help out with the meal, and enjoy a taste of the strong Durango community fostered at the soup kitchen.
