This is a gathering at a church, or in a park. People are bringing a dish-a common dish meal; maybe a lunch or a dinner. All these people are lined up to partake.
They don't know each other too well, but it is definitely an event.
Looks like pastries. A potluck or something. You can never have too many desserts. Yeah!! Perhaps it is a potluck.
...coffee cake, merengue pie, sweet bread-that would be popular. This could be the Fall as they have coats on. The two ladies in the front really could be representing late Spring or perhaps Fall.
There is a long line. A lot of low talking; comments about the food probably. Perhaps it is quiet as the people enjoy the food.
I am wondering what attracts you to a certain type of dessert?...Is there a rule on how many servings you can get at one time? I would be courteous and only get one piece. I can always get more. This reminds me of the story of the Loaves and Fishes. (Matthew 14:13-21)
