Community Meal for Those in Need; Young and Old Alike

Every single day of the week, there is a place for those who are hungry to go for a FREE hot meal in Pottstown, Pennsylvania.  This is amazing and wonderful!  I am so proud of my community.   The Pottstown Cluster of Religious Communities organizes the community meal program which takes place at various churches in Pottstown.  

For the daily meal schedule, click HERE, or scroll down to the bottom of the page.  If you are lucky enough to have food on your table every day and want to help those less fortunate, VOLUNTEER, or make a DONATION.  It's easy.  If you have questions, please feel free to ask me.  


For this meal, I prepared macaroni and cheese, stewed tomatoes, green beans, peaches, rolls and a plethora of fancy desserts, all provided at no charge to those in need in our Pottstown Community.


Many thanks to Fr. Terry and Christ Episcopal Church for allowing us to use their church to feed so many.  Christ Episcopal is located at 316 East High Street, between Rite Aid and the Farmers' Market.  Deacon-in-training, Robin, blessed the food before the meal.  Robin helped the disabled and young children with their trays and also joined the diners during their meal, discussing with them their concerns.  Thank you, Robin, and WELCOME!     


Feeding those in need would not be possible without the help of volunteers.  Thank you so very much for your big hearts!


Here is the meal schedule for Pottstown:


How can you worship a homeless man on Sunday and ignore one on Monday?  You can't.  Volunteer


 Until next time,

God Bless you, Merrill! You are a shining example of how we should all behave when it comes to America's homeless. It is such a widespread epidemic and it's time it has become the focal point of any and every political campaign. We need to stamp out hunger in America!

Merrll, thanks, and more thanks for the portrait of how a community CAN work together. We at Christ Church are honored & blessed by the homeless daily. Not just one, but many churches, many people help one another collectively and it is a shining example of what can be done localy. Craig
