As a congregation, one of the ways in which we are able to put words into action is through the program Dinner at Noon. This program, which is overseen by Helping Hands for the Hungry and Homeless, asks local congregations, on a rotating basis, to prepare and serve lunch every Saturday at the Carver Center in Port Chester. Our congregation has this blessing a little less often than once each month. Depending on the time of year we serve from 50 to 150 guests.
Generally, we meet at the Carver Center at 10:30 to organize things. We serve the meal between 11:30 and 11:45, and by 12:30 we are finished and on our way home. In order to do this properly we need about 10 volunteers who may include children, who are a great help to us and a joy to our guests. Although the food for the meal has already been prepared, gifts of floral arrangements, seasonal table decorations and other kindnesses are welcome.
