Thursday evenings you will find a group gathered together in Orrville for a hot meal in a friendly environment. People from all walks of life: senior citizens looking for companionship; grandparents raising grandchildren; a family with 3 generations living under one roof. You will see the young and old, singles and families, many struggling to make ends meet in difficult financial times. Some have had injuries, have lost jobs or struggle emotionally and physically due to illnesses.
Friendship Meals is a non-church affiliated program that provides a social gathering place for people to come once a week and share a nutritionally balanced hot meal. Meals are prepared and served by community volunteers. Interaction between our clients and volunteers is encouraged and promotes understanding and compassion. Clients volunteer to assist in clean up after the meal to show gratitude and gain a feeling of self worth by giving back to the organization.
Meals are served every Thursday evening from 5:30 to 6:30 pm at Christ United Church of Christ, 301 North Main Street in Orrville, OH 44667.
