New Life Glenside Food Cupboard Meals

Tuesday Evening Meals for Food Cupboard Guests

Hello!

Please take a look at available dates and coordinate with your group to determine when you can provide a meal for people coming to receive groceries from the New Life Food Cupboard. These meals take place on Tuesday evenings, and are open to anyone in the community who would like a home-cooked meal. We would love for each group to sign up for at least one date. 

Your group should be prepared to serve 40 to 50 individuals. Given the relatively large-scale nature of these meals, it's best to have four households provide main dishes (e.g. soups, casseroles, meatballs, pasta dishes). Another individual or two can provide a salad, another bread, and lastly someone can provide dessert. We typically serve water with these meals; decaf coffee and other beverages are nice, but are not necessary. 

We encourage groups to have the meal ready to serve by no later than 6:10pm. This allows folks plenty of time to eat and fellowship before we have them go down to the Weldon room for a time of prayer and to distribute groceries. This means that members of your group should be at the church by 5:30 or so for set up. We understand that many community group members are busy on Tuesday evenings; in the past, people who can't make it Tuesday nights have brought dessert or bread to the church on Sunday and appointed another member of their community group to serve the food on Tuesdays. 

Our Tuesday meals are a blessing to people coming to receive groceries from the food cupboard. Though it's not 'necessary' to have a dinner, it's a way for our church to show hospitality to our community. For many, it may be the only home-cooked meal they have all week. And for a lot of people, especially the older folks, it's a rare opportunity to make a social connection and feel a sense of community. Your involvement in this ministry is an opportunity to show the love of Christ to those in need. Thanks to those who have volunteered in the past and thanks to everyone who is considering getting involved. 

Blessings,

Adam
