Care Kitchen marks seventh birthday 

Published 10:14 pm Wednesday, May 1, 2019

Seven years ago, the Polk Baptist Association (PBA) Care Kitchen was just a dream. The idea was first discussed by a committee from local churches that felt there was a need for providing a good meal to those in the area. Following several weeks of planning, the first no-cost Friday lunch was served on May 4, 2012.   

The meal is especially nice for those who live alone or have no other family home for lunchtime. Often when local workers tire of eating at the fast food places, this is a welcome change for them. All are invited to the lower level of the Polk Baptist Association Office, 208 Blanton Street in Columbus every Friday 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. The meal is free but donations are greatly appreciated should you desire to contribute towards the expenses. Churches and groups are encouraged to collect and deliver non-perishables for use in our Care Kitchen.
