The Banquet is an ecumenical outreach of the church and community, equipping volunteer ministers to provide food, nurture and hospitality to those served through the ministry of The Banquet. The Banquet offers the opportunity to volunteer groups to provide, prepare and serve meals to people living on limited means. School supplies are available to school age youth throughout the school year and an annual Christmas gift is offered to people in need of extra help with necessities in December. The Banquet is totally dependent on volunteers to operate the feeding ministry and special projects. Volunteer groups are needed to staff nine meals per week. Families are encouraged to participate as members of a group, but opportunities are available on Thanksgiving and Christmas for individual volunteers.
