Tree of Life
The Tree of Life Community Kitchen is commited to providing a free meal to our neighbors on a weekly basis. After pausing in 2020-21, we are returning to in-person dinners at Crossroads Baptist Church.
We welcome your family, church, work and community groups to partner with TOL serving hot meals and providing fellowship and Christ-centered conversations with our Leesburg community.
For those hosting and bringing the hot meals, please arrive by 5:30 pm at Crossroads Baptist Church. We will set up, pray as a group and begin serving at 6:00 pm. The dinner/fellowship time is from 6:00 – 7:15 pm, and clean- up will be from 7:15 pm – 7:30 pm. We would like to have a short (5- minute) devotional at 6:45 pm. If there is someone from your group who would like to offer this, please let us know in advance so we can prepare if you’d rather not.
We are asking each sign-up to bring 75 meals. This could include:
1. A main item: hot dogs, pasta casseroles, chili, stew or hearty soups.
2. A side item: salad, vegetables, bread, rolls
4. Bottles of water
We are asking for a group or individuals to bring enough for 75 meals. As we get back to the flow again, we will adjust the number of meals accordingly. If there are leftovers, we will package them for folks to take out.
Some groups opt to purchase meals from local restaurants and – this is a great way to feed those in need and support local businesses.
The kitchen at Crossroads Baptist is very limited. We are not able to cook anything there, but we can use the one oven to keep dishes warm. There are serving utensils available in the kitchen, and some bowls for serving.
Due to the COVID variant rising again, we will ask everyone to wear masks, except while eating or drinking. We will have hand sanitizer on every table and plenty of Clorox wipes available. Please help us be as safe as possible as we come back inside to provide meals for our needy community.
Thank you for your generosity and love for the Lord.
