Feeding our stomachs and our souls

By Stacy Orloff

For four days we have had a wonderful hot lunch prepared for us by the kitchen staff of the Soweto Hospice.  Every day when we returned from our day out in Soweto, the kitchen staff would be waiting for us.  Into our room they would come, bringing platters of hot and cold food.  As they entered the room, the kitchen staff would greet us, calling us Honey and Lovey, asking how our day was.  We were greeted with hugs and smiles.  As we ate our last meal with them on Thursday, we told the kitchen staff that we knew the ‘best cooks in all of South Africa were in the hospice kitchen.’   We are so thankful for the loving way they took care of us.
