First Presbyterian offers
free holiday meals
First Presbyterian Church members have donated numerous food items to provide holiday meals to food-insecure guests who stop by the church between 5:30 and 6:00 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 12, and Thursday, Dec. 10. The church’s monthly “Welcome Table” community meal program plans to supply guests with a free bag of groceries for each of the two dates. Inside the bag will be canned ham, canned yam or sweet potatoes, canned cranberries, canned green beans, stove-top stuffing mix, chicken broth, yellow cake mix, berry pie filling and canned 7-Up and Sprite drinks. The last three items are ingredients for a dessert recipe that will be included. Guests should drive through the church parking lot to the back of the sanctuary building (1051 Oak Ridge Turnpike) at the intersection of the Turnpike and Lafayette Drive on the second Thursday of this month and December. Church volunteers wearing masks will deliver the groceries to guests in their cars.
