Every Saturday from 1 pm to 3 pm First Church serves a Community Meal in our downstairs hall for anyone who stops by for food and companionship.

Many of the volunteers donate to providing these meals and we have received some outside donations which were gratefully received. We have enjoyed the help of many volunteers whether members and friends of First Church or others who have heard of our efforts and wanted to become involved.

We started the Community Meal in January 2019 with a few volunteers and fewer guests attending. Over time, the word has spread and we now serve over 50 guests weekly and our numbers are growing. Our volunteers have all reported that being at the Community Meal is one of the most rewarding experiences they’ve had.

If you would like to become part of our Community Meal, we have several needs: monetary donations or supermarket gift cards; non-perishable food items such as pasta and pasta sauce, canned chicken; fresh fruit and vegetables including salad vegetables; and of course volunteers! For more information on specific donations or how to take part in the Community Meal, please contact the church at 1stchurchoffice@verizon.net or at 978 537-0310
