Each week, Christine’s Kitchen at Holy Trinity in West Orange sponsors a free hot lunch for 75 to 100 guests in their Parish Hall. Though the program is coordinated and located at Holy Trinity, they rely on outside groups and congregations to provide the meal and volunteers needed to cook, setup, serve, and clean up.
St. George’s has volunteered to host the meal on Saturday, January 5th, 2019. Though this was conceived as an outreach opportunity for our Confirmation Class and Youth Group, the success of the day will depend on a broader, parish wide effort. To that end, we will be looking for approximately 20 volunteers to commit to cooking and helping on the day of the event.
We will gather at Holy Trinity on January 5th at 10:30 to ensure we’re ready to receive our guests at 12 noon, and will then serve and clean up. We should be completed by 2:00-2:30. A sign-up genius form will follow shortly.
