Serving free hot meals: Noon on Thursdays @ St. George’s Church
St. George's Common Table serves a hot lunch to an average of 125 people every Thursday. There are no restrictions as to who may attend, and all are welcome. The doors open at 11:30am when hot coffee and tea is available. The meal is served from 12noon until 1pm. It consists of a nutritious hot soup, a main entree, a green salad, buttered bread, home made desserts, and a piece of fresh fruit. The soup and main course vary each week and are freshly made that day. The desserts seem to be the highlight of the meal, as they consist of a huge assortment of cakes, pies, and cookies all of which are lovingly baked and donated by our volunteers.
Volunteering: Some volunteers arrive around 8:30am to start with the food preparation, some around 10am to help with the set up, and others arrive around 11:30am to help with the serving and the clean up. Many stay the entire time. If you would like to join this vital ministry, please contact Doug Perry at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
