Preparing and serving food for those in need...


Feeding the hungry is one of the most important outreach ministries of Trinity Church. Over the years we have been involved in feeding programs at Nike Village, Bread and Roses, Haven from Hunger, and LifeBridge (formerly Salem Mission). Our current efforts to end hunger are focused on LifeBridge in Salem, MA.

This important work is open to persons of all ages - children included. There are three distinct roles for volunteers to play.  With enough people helping, we can expect to participate every two months or so. The tasks are as follows:


1.  Shopping for food. We will  use four recipes in rotation.  They are available in the Trinity kitchen and below under "RECIPES".  The shopper  will buy the listed ingredients and make sure they are available in the kitchen on the designated cooking Sunday.  Shoppers will be reimbursed for their purchases.  Stop in at the church office for a green reimbursement form.  A Check will be mailed to you.




2.  Cooking.  Cooks will meet on the designated Sunday in the Trinity kitchen. Cooks should expect to spend an hour to an hour and a half to prepare the main dish for the meal. We will follow the recipes and freeze the food for the next serving date.


3.  Serving.  2 - 4 persons are needed to handle serving at LifeBridge. One of the servers should be familiar with the procedures at LifeBridge and will be the informal 'leader' of the serving team. On the Wednesday night before the serving date, the leader will remove the food from the church freezer and place it in the refrigerator. The leader will then place the prepared meal in the church ovens on Friday morning. The team of servers should arrive at Trinity by 4:00 p.m. on serving day, pick up the hot food, breads and desserts, and bring it to LifeBridge.
