First Presbyterian Church will provide a free meal and bag of groceries to food-insecure guests who stop by the church between 5:30 and 6:00 p.m. on Thursday, December 10.
The church’s monthly Welcome Table community meal program plans to supply each guest with a meal consisting of taco soup, Fritos, fruit, and brownies, a press release said. In addition, each family in a car will receive a bag containing foods for making a holiday dinner.
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 to collect the foods donated by church members. Church volunteers wearing masks will deliver the groceries to guests in their cars, the press release said.
More information will be added as it becomes available.
