‘Care Kitchen’ in Columbus continues to serve Friday lunch

Published 3:10pm Tuesday, November 20, 2012

The Polk Baptist Association “Care Kitchen” continues to feed those who come by each week to enjoy hearty meals.

The kitchen is open every Friday, including the Friday following Thanksgiving, Nov. 23 and Friday following Christmas, Dec. 28.

The facility is very grateful for contributions and donations of food, which enable the volunteers to prepare different menus and tasty dishes. Some recent donations include a wonderful upright freezer by Cooper Gap Baptist Church and paperware by Mountain First Bank employees. Pizza, ice cream and paper supplies arrived from the Midway Youth Revival in October, as well as many delicious cakes, pies and breads by area ladies almost every week.

The Care Kitchen offers free lunch every Friday from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. in the dining room (basement of Polk Baptist Association) located at 208 Blanton Street, Columbus.

All are invited and are welcome to receive delicious home cooked foods and fellowship. Sometimes there is even live music by the young guys of Mountain Valley Baptist Church. To make a donation of food or funds for the program, please contact the Care Kitchen secretary/treasurer at 828-817-0448.
