Hundreds of stomachs were satisfied thanks to a monstrous cooking effort by Rotary Bowral-Mittagong members.

The volunteers cooked enough nasi goreng to feed 220 people at Harbison Care, Burradoo.

Meal coordinator Jerry Kroon said they were challenged to cook the meal by a Harbison Care staff member.

“We used about 40 carrots, 60 eggs, 20 leeks, 1120 grams of uncooked rice and 2640 grams of meat, and were cooking for three hours to have everything ready,” Mr Kroon said.

Residents then enjoyed dancing to music organised by Tom Parkinson, who also helps with the Music for Dementia program.

“Everyone enjoys bopping around, I get requests for Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin and Elvis,” he said. “Music tends to reach people.”
