Cambridge Free Community Dinner
A Free Community Dinner will be served on Saturday, January 25, from noon to 1 p.m., at the First Baptist Church of Cambridge, N.Y. This month’s meal is soup and sandwiches. New Skete Monastery will provide their delicious soup and several local groups are contributing sandwiches, desserts and helping hands. The doors will open no earlier than 11:30 a.m. Reservations are not necessary. Take-outs will be available after 1, only for those unable to attend, and only after all those attending have been fed. There are no second meal take-outs.
These monthly meals are intended to provide a home-cooked hot meal for those living alone or perhaps needing a little company. We also know that sometimes by the end of the month, funds run short and these meals can help stretch food budgets a little further. Hosted by First Baptist Church of Cambridge with the assistance of eight community churches and organizations, the meals have been a blessing to no fewer than 60 and up to 250 people per meal. All are welcome.
First Baptist Church is located at 29 West Main Street, between Cambridge Valley Market and Glens Falls Bank. The church has a handicap accessible ramp and a handicap bathroom. If there are questions or the possibility of cancellation, or if your organization or group would like to sponsor a meal or help serve one, call Bev Collamer at 518-677-3327 or the church at 518-677-5487.
