BOSTON (AP) — About 150 volunteers helped to lift the spirits of homeless men and women at Boston's Pine Street Inn.

Mayor-elect Martin Walsh, U.S. Sen. Edward Markey and Cardinal Sean O'Malley of the Roman Catholic archdiocese of Boston were among those who served more than 1,000 Christmas Eve luncheons at New England's largest emergency shelter on Tuesday.

On the menu was tossed salad, beef stew, green beans, rolls and butter, and assorted desserts.

Meals were also served to residents of permanent housing sites in the Boston area run by the Pine Street Inn, and an outreach van was also distributing meals to unsheltered people on city streets.
