On the Second Saturday of the month, our church delivers and serves a meal for about 125 less fortunate people at the Loaves and Fishes Soup Kitchen at South Congregational Church in Springfield, MA. A team meets at our church around 11:15 am and leaves by 11:30. They return to our church by 1:00 pm.
Who can participate - Everyone is welcome, this is a great family activity or maybe you know of another group that might want to share this experience too (scouts, clubs, friends, even families in your neighborhood). This is what changes lives - both yours and theirs.
Pizza, cupcakes and bananas - A Special thank you to Big Y for our discount on the 9 large pizzas. Bananas are bought at Costco about 16 bunches, and the cupcakes (6 dozen) are home-made and we are always looking for bakers. Please join, it can be a life changing experience.
The meal is funded by our missions committee. Reimbursements with receipts for around $100 can be obtained through benevolence treasurer, Howard Beale.
