The Story - After several months of discussions, planning and prayers, The Outreach Committee of Trinity Lutheran Church decided to try "Community Meals" instead of a "Soup Kitchen" and began serving their first meal on January 10, 2007.  The thoughts were to serve all people, to build community, provide fellowship and feed the hungry. The hope was that 50 to 60 meals would be served once a month.  However, the ministry rapidly grew.
     In a short time, more and more meals were served and more and more local congregations and civic groups offered to participate.
     Trinity Lutheran, St. Denis & Holy Family Catholic Churches serve every month, Midmark Employees serve every other month, with the Versailles Council of Churches preparing every month with a fifth Wednesday. The other Wednesdays are filled by a variety of groups, churches and organizations.
     The meals are prepared in Trinity's kitchen and served in the church basement's Dining Room.
