We continue to be so thankful for everyone who is a part of our Second Helping meal every Sunday evening. We serve a carry out hot meal and a sack lunch to anyone who needs is every Sunday at 6:00 p.m. This effort takes many, many people working behind the scenes to plan the menus, procure the groceries, prepare the lunches, bake homemade desserts, cook the food, and serve it. Whew! There are many ways to be involved with Second Helping - from coming in to cook to cooking at home, buying supplies or making a cash donation. If you'd like to get involved, please let us know.
Our planning team reports that numbers of meals being served has gone up a bit in the past month. In August we
257 meals for guests, 91 meals for the Pawnee Crisis Stabilization Center, and 243 lunch bags. That’s 348 hot meals and a total of 591 meals. In August we also received a lot of food donations. Yay! We received large food donations from local partners as well as members of our congregation who regularly purchase supplies for lunches. Thank you to everyone who donated in August.
