Ninety-six servings of food were prepared by the Verde Valley School kitchen staff and delivered to the soup kitchen at St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church in West Sedona last week.
VVS students Nam Pham, Katja Beisheim, Ali Maricich and Lainie Benedict delivered the food along with Dale Domingue, a supervisor and wife of headmaster Paul Domingue.
“The soup kitchen’s guests loved the food,” Domingue stated in a press release. “VVS students have been donating and serving food for several years.”
The students set everything up for dinner, work the serving line and clean up afterwards. The students also take turns eating and conversing with the attendees.
“It’s important that they get to know the community and vice versa,” Domingue stated.
In addition to washing all the dishes, the students wipe down all the eating and serving tables, sterilizing as they go, and then they sweep, vacuum and mop the floors.
Verde Valley School is an independent, boarding and day school with 120 students from around the United States and the world. Around 50 percent of the students come from places as far away as China, Russia, Germany, Spain, Greece, Taiwan, Japan, Korea, Vietnam, Rwanda and Nigeria.
