Forty guests and volunteers shared in a free, home-cooked dinner at Saluda’s Welcome Table Tuesday, Oct. 30. The menu included lasagna, salad, fresh-baked bread and a choice of desserts, all prepared and served by volunteers whose aim is to provide a weekly free meal to the Saluda community.

“We know there are individuals and families in our community who are hungry and would benefit from a free meal,” said one volunteer. “But there are also those who feel lonely or disconnected. Our hope is that a weekly gathering around a shared table can help meet those needs as well.”

Beginning Tuesday, Nov. 20, dinners will be served from 5:30-7 p.m. in the fellowship hall of Saluda United Methodist Church. Saluda’s Welcome Table is a community effort. Everyone is welcome.
