A consortium of organizations, including United Way, the Town of Hamden, Hamden Plains United Methodist Church and Grace and St Peter’s Church, are planning to expand Grace and St Peter’s Dinner for a Dollar from one meal each week to two meals beginning on February 22. From there, in the not distant future, we hope to further expand to three, four and more meals per week. The first added meal will be take place on Saturday evenings at Hamden Plains United Methodist Church.
We have invited local businesses and organizations to commit to cooking and/or serving one meal per month or to take on fifth Saturdays of the month which come up three or four times per year. As of now, we still need one or two organizations (or groups of individual volunteers) to claim a regular meal preparation and/or service.
