The LORD’S KITCHEN
The Lord’s Kitchen, Stratford’s only community meal program, has been serving free meals every Monday and Wednesday from 5 to 6 pm since 2011. The meals are served at Christ Episcopal Church by a dozen Stratford congregations and organizations, each taking one meal each month. OLG’s Lord’s Kitchen volunteers typically serve on the fourth Monday each month and we offer ham or turkey sandwiches in the summertime and we cook Shepard’s Pie (ground beef, mashed potatoes and mixed vegetables) in the colder months. We also provide salad and dessert.
Our volunteers shop for the food, prepare the meal, serve the meal and clean up when the meal is served. At the end of the meal we hand out “goodie bags” of toilet paper, tooth brushes, tooth paste and soap, which have been generously donated by OLG’s parishioners each month.
The volunteers from Our Lady of Grace Parish will be serving the meal at the Lord’s Kitchen on Monday, April 26th. We ask our parish family to keep our volunteers in their prayers as they take care of those who are in need. Our volunteers also ask the help of our parishioners by donating toothpaste, toothbrushes, and toilet tissue. We are accepting monetary donations to assist with the meal expenses! The collection buckets will be available April 17/18 to receive your donations. The buckets will be placed outside the rectory garage. Monetary donations may be placed in the offertory box or the lock box by the rectory. Thank you for your kind consideration.
Thank you for your support of this ministry in service to the hungry!
