Food on the Common

Well established now, the Pilgrim Church van acts like a lighthouse to the early morning residents of the Boston Common.  The moment someone spies the van, the people begin their migration to where the tables will be and start forming a line. 

Pilgrim volunteers serve a delicious array of food that appears to be deeply appreciated by the people who hungrily gobble it down.
