Last Friday, the Octaform team joined the staff at Coast Mental Health's Resource Centre by serving over 200 people for their annual Winter Brunch. The menu consisted of roasted turkey with mashed potatoes and harvest vegetables followed by warm apple pie and vanilla ice cream. The event kept the team quite busy with duties ranging from meal preparation, serving food and drinks and cleaning tables. The team had such a great time participating, we plan on teaming up again next year!
