Date: September 20, 2020
Starting Sept. 20, the Social Action Team (SAT) is changing the Loaves and Fishes procedure because of the difficulty in recent months getting enough volunteers to prepare entire boxed/sack meals. Essentially, we are returning to the old system of having volunteers prepare 20 servings of various dishes, which will then be assembled into boxed meals by additional volunteers.
This change in procedure will require the volunteers who are providing food to take the food to Wilkes Boulevard United Methodist Church by 3:30 p.m. on Sept. 20 instead of 4:30 p.m. The volunteers who will assemble the boxed meals are asked to be at the church by 3:15 p.m.
Please submit receipts for all food items, and some or all of your expenses may be reimbursed by the church.
Loaves and Fishes was started in the mid-1980s by the St. Francis Catholic Worker community and serves a free community meal seven nights a week from 5 to 6 p.m. in the basement at Wilkes Boulevard United Methodist Church in partnership with that church and more than 20 other local faith communities and other organizations.
When you sign up below, you will receive a confirmation email. Please save the email because it will contain a link allowing you to cancel the signup if you need to. You can then reschedule for a different date on this page. If you have misplaced or permanently deleted the confirmation email, email the church administrator or the website administrator to cancel a signup.
After you sign up, your name will be displayed on the signup sheet. The other information you provide goes only to church personnel. Your email is required so our system can automatically send you a reminder of your signup two days before Sept. 20.
