the workday, lunches were provided to the work crews, thanks to a
group of volunteers at Jefferson Street Christian Church and donations of food
and other supplies from various Lincoln businesses.
Koni Lovett, captain of
the kitchen crew, explained that for the meals that would be
carryout or delivery, there were stations involved, including the
groups preparing the sack lunches, volunteers taking orders over the
phone and others getting the orders boxed up. Lovett said the
group put together sub sandwiches with meat and cheeses provided by
Lincoln IGA. They also had donations of bottled water, and
some of their members provided homemade cookies.
At the end of the day, Dustin Fulton,
pastor at the church, reported that the kitchen crew had assembled 457 sack
lunches. He said they therefore had estimated there were
approximately 500 volunteers at this year's event, because they knew
some of the crews turned down their lunch so others could eat.
Of all the food on hand,
Fulton reported that at the end of the day, there were just 10 cookies,
packets of mustard and one apple left.
