WCHI and the Faith Based Community have begun providing FREE COMMUNITY MEALS to low-income Whitehall-Coplay households since WCHI had to close the meals down 19 months ago due to Covid. These meals are available twice a month through December 2022. The host locations change every time.
All are welcome to attend both meals on the 1st Sunday and 3rd Tuesday each month from 4:00-6:30pm. Meals are guaranteed for the 1st 100 guests. Each site location will state if their meal is an inside or outside “Drop and Go” distribution or if it is a dine-in meal and if masks are required or not. We will post the host site requirements on Facebook.
Our October meals were very successful for just starting them again and for reaching out to the residents to know the meal locations and times. Both October meals were “Drop and Go” pick up hot meals.
The Sunday, Oct 3rd meal was provided by Muslim Association of Lehigh Valley (MALV). They made Gyro’s and had chips, applesauce, and homemade dessert. 43 meals were served to 25 adults, 14 children and 4 seniors.
The Tuesday, Oct 19th meal was provided by Shepherd of the Hills Lutheran Church. They made a version of Shepherd’s Pie, applesauce, and homemade dessert. 98 meals we served to 42 adults, 19 children, and 37 seniors. The meal attendance is picking up due to increased marketing and our guests knowing about them.
