Three times a day the amazing kitchen staff from the Rescue Center prepares meals for all the kids. The meals are very Haitian. Breakfast may be spaghetti with hot dogs in it, or a home-made cream of wheat. Lunch and dinner are usually some combination of rice and beans with a sauce made from tomato paste, veggies and meat. They have snacks also, usually crackers/bread with peanut butter or cookies or the in-season fruit. Right now we have a lot of donated ensure pudding that they have been enjoying for snacks now and then- packed with calories! Meal time is never clean, just try to imagine 60 kids eating spaghetti :) The kids get a bath after every meal and all the tables and the ground are washed down after. A lot of the kids eat the meat first, they crave the protein. Then the rice. Most of them finish their bowls, which seem to be as big as their heads :)
Praising God today for all the donations RHFH receives to be able to support feeding these kids 3 balanced meals a day. Most Haitians have one and they usually don't have the luxury of meat, as its more expensive.
