Our parish has been involved in community kitchen since it began almost 20 years ago. It began under the leadership of Rev. Carl Mazza as an extension of the yearly thanksgiving dinner welcoming the entire community. Churches and organizations formed an umbrella group with a different provider preparing and serving a meal each Friday at Elkton Presbyterian Church. Rev. Laurel Loveless, then Pastor of Elkton Presbyterian Church , graciously offered Elkton Presbyterian Church as host church and is still the host church in 2022.
Our parish takes a turn the 4th Friday of each quarter throughout the year. We prepare the food, provide the volunteers, and enjoy the fellowship that unfolds each week. Some members of the parish donate funds toward the operating cost of our turn. Others make soup, sandwiches dessert or donate fruit. We are grateful for a delicious and nutritious meal and for the help with clean-up!
