Community Suppers

The Faithful Foodies welcome all who love to cook or simply want to help those in need to our
happy band. Our mission is to prepare and serve a meal to anyone in need on the 4 th
Wednesday of each month between 4:00 and 6:00 PM. The meal is served at 2 nd
Congregational Church in Newcastle.
There are several parts to each meal and help with any of them would be welcome. First there’s
setting up the tables and chairs, which only takes a few minutes. Once the tables are set up,
the place settings need to be set. If you have only 15 or 30 minutes to spare, come on over at
4:00 and help with either of those parts.
The most time-consuming part is preparing food ahead of time. Usually we do that at home and
just cook or reheat it at 2 nd Congregational. If anyone has a recipe that can be expanded to feed
40, and done ahead, we’re always looking for suggestions. If you could provide some or all of a
recipe and just drop if off, that would be most welcome. We would even offer to pick it up if
transportation is an issue.
Finally, the serving and clean up take only about 45 minutes, thanks to good system and a great
kitchen in which to work.
The goal is to spread the work and responsibility so no one feels overburdened. We take turns
running point (which means planning the menu and gathering help for that month) and would
be delighted to include new people. So if you have a strong arm to help briefly, time to prepare
a dish or an hour to serve, even once a year, please contact Edie Vaughan at 677-6085 or
