Volunteers all stepped forward to take time out of their day and help out those in need. The volunteers fed the homeless and destitute on August 9th, drawing the foods out of a large tub which was filled to the brim with a traditional punch called hwachae. The photo shows the group having a blast as they pour the punch into small individual bowls for the homeless to enjoy.

Hwachae is a general term for Korean traditional punches made with various fruits or edible flower petals soaked in omija (Schisandra chinensis berries) or honeyed juice.
