This Sunday, January 22nd, the plate collection will be donated to Lex Eat Together, a new grassroots volunteer organization that serves free weekly community meals year round at the Episcopal Church of Our Redeemer. Harriet Kaufman, one of the founders, will be joining us during the service.
Over 70 guests a week come not just for a nutritious hot meal but for companionship and good conversation. Friendships are being made and people look forward to coming each Wednesday. The food is donated and picked up by volunteers. Volunteers help to cook, set up, serve and clean up. There is great need in Lexington and the surrounding communities to reach out and help alleviate the current hunger situation. We are always looking for ways to expand our outreach further. For some volunteers the real draw is the feeling of making lasting and personal impact in people’s lives.
Your donations will be gratefully received on Sunday, January 22nd. If you are interested in volunteering, please visit the website at lexeattogether.org or visit Harriet and other volunteers during social hour.
