From Cindy Fauerbach:
Emmanuel Dining Room update
Our day to provide lunch at the Walnut Street Emmanuel Dining Room (EDR) is this Sunday, May 31st. Sadly, due to the Corvid-19, we are still not able to actually "serve lunch" in the dining room. The EDR staff continues preparing and serving lunch as a "take away" meal. The need has grown and most days they provide meals for over 225 people.
Thanks to your continued generosity, we have donated the ingredients for the May 31st lunch: turkey meatballs with sauce and roll (for a meatball sub), banana, a bag of chips, a bag of cookie snacks, a Hershey's kiss or mints, and a bottle of water.
In a heartwarming outpouring of community support and giving, many individuals and groups have been making peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. So each person is also able to take a lunch bag that includes a PBJ sandwich, bottle of water, and crackers to eat later in the day. We also donated crackers to be added in the "extra lunch bag" and snack sized cereal boxes for families and children.
If you would like to donate money to help cover the costs of this and/or future meals, please send a check into the office and note EDR in the memo.
We hope that by our next lunch on July 31st, we'll be able to bring, prepare, and serve at the dining room. But, if that's not possible, we'll be ready to supply the ingredients for a wholesome meal.
