First Wednesday Luncheon

First Wednesday Luncheon.

Please note: if the Wallingford Schools are closed due to inclement weather, the luncheon is cancelled.

As part of our Outreach Ministry we host a luncheon on the first Wednesday from September to June. Of course holidays and weather often dictate a change to another Wednesday. For a $5 contribution you are treated to beverage and appetizers, soup, entree, vegetable, salad, dessert and coffee or tea. Previous entrees have been chicken a la king, shepherd’s pie, baked potato bar, a May Brunch, baked ham and lasagne. We would love to have you join us. Allergies? Check with a committee member ahead of time and we’ll try to accommodate.

It all started about 20 years ago as a lunch for the retired men of the Church. Soon women retirees were added, too. Then why not anyone who was free at lunch time and before long why not any member of our Church community. Now, why not you?

Our philosophy seems best put in these thoughts by food writer Laurie Colwin.
“The table is a meeting place, a gathering ground, the source of sustenance and nourishment, festivity, and satisfaction. A person cooking is a person giving: Even the simplest food is a gift.”
We would love to share with you.
