Cookies for the Soup Kitchen

There is a lady in our church parish that every year bakes dozens of cookies for the Soup Kitchen at Christmas time. She bakes the cookies and then the 2nd Grade and the 6th Grade have the job of frosting all of the cookies. This morning was the day for the 2nd and 6th graders to complete this service project. This project requires organization because they frosted 900 cookies in about 40 minutes. A group of mothers lay out the cookies, paper towels, plastic gloves, frosting and sprinkles. We are responsible for making the frosting and getting all of the supplies needed to complete the project. When you first see all 900 cookies laid out, the task seems rather daunting, but once started the project goes quickly.

One table all ready for the students to have a seat and begin frosting.

Erica frosting her first cookie. All of the students had a great time.

A long table of completed cookies reading for the Soup Kitchen to pick up and serve.

This was my second year to help with this project and Erica's teacher said that I am on this project for life. I'm not sure I want to be on for life, but the project isn't so bad because it is completed quickly.

Take care,


  1. What an amazing project. I agree with being quick because it is over in one day and once you get the logistics down you are good to go.

  2. What a sweet thing to do. I love the long table picture!

    Hope you are surviving this week. Our weather is getting bad for the first time tonight! I slid all the way home from CCD. The Interstate was moving at 40 mph! Yikes!

  3. There is so much love in these pictures! That table full of cookies is awesome. Well done!
