Here's another way that Great Escape (and Girl Scouts!) helps to make the world a better place. As everyone who plans meals for families and/or large events knows, it's hard to estimate how much food you need. When you try to plan meals for a weekend for 80+ people, you have a large margin of error. Our kitchen crew does a great job estimating and planning quantities to the ounce, but if we have last minute cancellations or weather conditions change, we might have left over food.
Luckily kitchen crew members Fluke and Crunch, wearing their other hats as directors of Camp Runels, have established a relationship with Anne-Marie House in Nashua, New Hampshire. This organization for homeless families transitioning to permanent housing serves meals to its patrons. If we have significant leftovers, we donate them to this organization. See their website for more about their work: http://annemariehouse.org/
Somehow, though, there's never any leftover cocoa. It seems that Great Escapers have hollow legs when it comes to hot chocolate - and bacon!
