Santa Claus (Pastor Charles Dillon of Carpenters House Global Ministries) looks for more toys to give out Tuesday at the Kenneth Butler Memorial Soup Kitchen in Greenfield.

GREENFIELD — With rooms packed full of patrons and volunteers, most of whom had to turn sideways to get around, Judy Crist said she always had an inkling the Kenneth Butler Memorial Soup Kitchen was special; she just didn’t realize how special until Christmas Eve.

“This place is blessed all the time,” Crist said, as trays loaded with plates full of turkey, ham, mashed potatoes and other holiday fare passed from the kitchen to the dining room like ammunition boxes in a firefight. “But I’ve never seen this place so blessed.”

Crist, a KBMSK board member, was standing alongside executive director Jill Ebbert in the pantry marveling at the success of the kitchen’s first-ever Christmas Eve meal and celebration in partnership with Carpenters House Global Ministries.
