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 OLG volunteers at the Lord’s Kitchen, thank our parishioners for their support of the Lord’s Kitchen. The OLG volunteers will be serving the meal at the Lord’s Kitchen on Monday, January 24th. We ask our parish family to keep our volunteers in their prayers. 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 the weekend before to receive your donations. The buckets will be placed outside the parish garage the weekend of January 15th &16th.
Thank you for your support of this ministry in service to the hungry!
