Christ Community Kitchen recently lost 200 pounds of poultry for its community meals.
A local church kitchen that has been serving meals to the community each month for the past 8 years could use some help. Steve Speakman, of The Walnut Street United Methodist Christ Community Kitchen, said they recently lost some poultry for their meals.
"There was a mix up with Good Samaritan," said Speakman. "They got our shipment from Mid Ohio, and it didn't get put in the refrigerator or freezer, and, unfortunately, we lost about 200 pounds of chicken."
He said those who would like to help could do so by dropping off an uncooked turkey at any time or he/she could cook a chicken or turkey and drop it off at their next community meal on November 19th, which runs from 4-6pm.
Speakman said the kitchen will unfortunately not be able to hold its Thursday Italian Nights in November nor December, but a member of Christ Community Kitchen will be at the church on the second Thursday of both months passing out frozen meals to those in need.
"There's no hot dinners that night, but these can be hot by just throwing them in the oven," he said.
The regular Tuesday night meal will be served November 19th and then again December 17th; however, Tuesday meals won't be served November 26th and December 24th.
Speakman emphasized the meals are open to anyone as they serve up to 400 people each time they meet.
"It's amazing the fellowship that happens in our social room when we start serving these meals," he said.
