On Monday, Jan. 19 – Martin Luther King Jr. Day – the basement of Evangelical United Methodist Church in Middletown was filled with hungry souls who ventured out for the community dinner, a fundraiser for charity.
For $8, every adult got a full plate of home-cooked baked ham, scalloped potatoes, green beans, applesauce, a roll, dessert and a beverage, served up with a smile by church volunteers. The price was $3 for children age 12 and under.
Evangelical UMC is one of four Middletown churches that host these community dinners on a rotating basis on Monday nights. The others are the Presbyterian Congregation, St. Peter’s Evangelical Lutheran Church and Middletown First Church of God.
The money the churches take in not only goes to cover the cost of the dinners, but also toward helping meet the needs of the less fortunate. At Evangelical UMC, for example, part of the money from the dinners goes to The Sunshine Fund, which distributes food and other items to folks in need.
Close to 200 people usually attend the community dinners at Evangelical UMC, said Louise Morgan, coordinator of the church’s dinner committee.
See who was there!
