The Garden Cafe to open for needy
A group of area churches sponsoring The Garden Cafe, a weekly hot evening meal for individuals and families out of work and food, will serve its first meal Thursday, June 11 from 6 p.m.-7 p.m. at the Catholic Social Services building behind St. Joseph’s Catholic Church.
The target group to receive these services has been chosen and those who wish to apply for a hot meal should contact the following churches to fill out an application, according to Sandra Young, volunteer for the benefit.
Individuals or families who need a hot meal are asked to contact the following churches in Holly Springs to be referred to the program. After the need for food is established using income guidelines, no additional application will be necessary.
Participating churches to date that will handle your application include the following – St. Joseph’s Catholic Church, Anderson Chapel CME Church, Christ Episcopal Church, Heritage Apostolic Church, Asbury United Methodist Church, First Presbyterian Church, and Sacred Heart Southern Missions.
Those in need do not have to be affiliated with any of these or any other church in order to ask for a meal. Ask anyone in Holly Springs to help you contact one of the churches above to make your application for food.
The Garden Cafe will be opened on a weekly basis by trial to determine if there is a need for the service.
Volunteers, donations and utensils are needed for this humanitarian effort. Some food items are available for this effort from Second Harvest in Memphis.
The first meal will be served by the Christ Episcopal Church men’s group.
Address any further inquiries to Sr. Joel Curcio at 662-252-1336.
