Trinity Presbyterian Church are not just words to Doctor Samuel M. Stone. To celebrate his 50th birthday, Sam and Sophie, his wife, volunteered at Eva's Kitchen in Paterson to help feed over 300 needy people. To celebrate with these needy individuals, they brought gifts for everyone. A unique way to celebrate an important milestone in his life and to adhere to his basic tenets.Urging charity and recognition of one's fellow man at
Getting prepared to serve the meals required setting the tables and being introduced to Darryl Dela Cruz, Executive Chef Director at Eva's Kitchen. Only on the job three months, Cruz, like the football player, is looking to higher and better things for his clientele. In addition to preparing the menus and the food, Darryl is looking forward to opening a cooking school where he can teach some of the participants how to cook and eventually getting employed.
The meals served by volunteers like Sam and Sophie consisted of chicken breast, mashed potatoes and carrots and peas. Set up assembly style, people wheeled trays in front of the serving area where they took the filled plates to the diners. Tina Apprich also volunteered and was busy supplying water to the tables. Feeding over three hundred people at once takes a lot of hands and hard work. As they left, there were bags of bread and cookies for the diners to take home. Some of them shared their largesse with a passel of pigeons who were seen feasting in the parking lot.

When the serving was over, the Stones opted for an Armenian meal at Krichian's Grill and Bistro, located at 399 Crooks Avenue in Paterson. Dining there was either indoors or al fresco. it being a beautiful day, the Stone entourage selected the outdoor dining, a rare luxury. The food was unique and delicious. It was a fine way to finish off a worthy venture.
