COMMUNITY MEAL: Hope’s Place is a free community monthly meal initiative offered by the Mission Committee of Hope United Methodist Church in Belchertown. The church family held community meals each month in 2012, including a Thanksgiving feast and a festive Christmas potluck meal. That effort grew into providing a substantial free hot meal for the community on the last Tuesday of each month. A recent grant award from Loaves and Fishes will enable Hope’s Place to expand and hopefully reach more persons, enhance fellowship and foster positive community relations.
The next Free Community Meal will take place from 6-7 p.m. on Tuesday in the Fellowship Hall of the church. The menu will include corned beef and cabbage, rolls and dessert. There will also be a vegetarian option of pasta with sauce available.
‘No reservations required. For information, call the church at 323-7584.
