The call goes out at the end of a class in the late afternoon, "Kitchen crew, go change and get down to the mess hall!"
Eight to ten people gather in the kitchen. There's not enough pots and pans, the utensils are a random collection, and the equipment was last updated around 1970. Still, every night in camp a meal gets made, rice, main dishes, salad, vegetarian options, food enough to serve a hundred hungry people.
It happens every night. Preparing a meal and eating together is one of the things families do.
