Family Kitchen


Since February 2, 1997, the Family Kitchen has served a meal each weekend (formerly on Sundays, currently on Saturdays) to anyone in need of a meal. Ten (10) United Methodist Churches in the Purchase District, as well as several churches from various denominations and groups participate in the rotating schedule for this ministry by preparing and serving a meal a few times per year at the former St. Luke Aldersgate Methodist Church, now Holy House of Prayer.

Through the efforts of many churches and groups (including youth groups), individuals can get a hot meal every day of the week: on weekdays at the Community Kitchen, on Sundays at Broadway United Methodist Church, and on Saturdays at the Family Kitchen (from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.).
