Synod Delegates Eating a Lot . . . of Vegetables

| |

It takes a lot of food to keep Christian Reformed Church synod delegates happy. Three hundred pounds of pork at Saturday’s picnic. Ten gallons of scrambled eggs every morning. Two-hundred-forty desserts per coffee break—all gone, every time.

In fact, delegates to the annual leadership meeting eat about twice as much per person as Dordt College students do, according to the college’s executive chef, Nick Lawrence.

The good news is that synod delegates also consume twice as many vegetables per capita when compared to the college’s students. “You guys are eating more vegetables than I expected,” said Lawrence. “I had to put in an extra order.”


Synod 2015 is meeting at Dordt College in Sioux Center, Iowa, from June 12-18. For continuous Banner coverage, please follow The Banner Magazine on Facebook or @crcbanner on Twitter.
