ANDY HALLMAN/Ledger photo A volunteer fills cups with water for a “Come to Supper” meal. The free meals are served to anyone in need on the second and fourth Tuesday of each month at First Lutheran Church. Hunger Dialogue is looking for organizations to supply meals.

The next “Come To Supper” semimonthly meal will be 6-7 p.m. Tuesday at First Lutheran Church for anyone who is in need of a free meal.

Although First Lutheran Church is always the host site, many different organizations supply the food for the meals, explained Kay Steele, the church secretary.

Finding service organizations to supply the food for meals and getting the word about about the events are challenges, said Margaret Dwyer.

Dwyer is a member of the group behind the Come to Supper meals: Hunger Dialogue.

Hunger Dialogue was formed in 2016 to alleviate food insecurity in Jefferson County. Group members decided a good place to start would be to invite the public to a free meal twice a month. The program is known as “Come to Supper,” and its inaugural event was held on Valentine’s Day this year.

Plans are to continue Come to Supper meals 6-7 p.m. on the second and fourth Tuesday of each month at the church as long as sponsoring organizations can be found.

For information about Come to Supper or volunteering to supply a meal, contact the church at 472-4184.
