The first Tuesday in 2018, January 2nd, marks the one year anniversary for Cup of Grace. Yes, we will have been providing free, weekly meals for our community for one full year!
On that first Tuesday of 2017, we served 23 people. There was much joy and laughter in the room, neighbors met neighbors, and delicious food was shared. Boy, have we grown! Lately, we have been serving an average of 85 people every week. What hasn’t changed is the joy, laughter, conversation and delicious food.
It is a true blessing for us to be able to provide this service for our community. We love meeting our neighbors, getting to know them, and building relationships. Oh, and the food isn’t too bad either! We regularly enjoy homemade soups, casseroles, and other scrumptious meals. And the desserts – we have the best desserts!
We couldn’t do all of this without our amazing, faithful volunteers. They arrive early to help set up, they serve the food and mingle with the diners, and stay late to clean and put everything away. Our volunteers step up each and every time we need them. Thank you!
Join us on Tuesday, January 2nd, 2018 to help us celebrate our first anniversary. Chili will be on the menu, just as it was for the first meal. We will also have a delicious cake to commemorate this auspicious occasion. See you there!
