Mission of the Month
Each month, as part of our broader program of Missions, Peace Dale Congregational Church supports a local non-profit organization or program focused on addressing needs within the local community.
Peace Dale Dinner Table
Through the Peace Dale Dinner Table, we are serving over 400 meals per week to our neighbors in need, children and their families, the alone and the hungry. That computes to over 22,000 meals per year. This mission is handled entirely by volunteers.
With our numbers at the Dinner Table increasing, this is a perfect time for the Dinner Table to have been selected as the Mission of the Month. Our increase reflects the statewide trend of more people seeking food assistance, as reported by the Rhode Island Community Food Bank. Its report cites high food prices, the steep rise in housing costs and the end of COVID relief programs as causes of increased food insufficiency.
Our crew of incredible volunteers do the work that makes this mission possible! Thus, donors know that every cent they give, goes to the purchase of food and materials needed to prepare the meals we serve.
Thanks to all the volunteers who make this mission possible: the bakers, the drivers, the baggers, the runners, the servers, those who package and pick up the bread, the dishwashers, the chefs and cooking crews, the reservation takers, the driving coordinator and our volunteer organizer.
Without the generosity of all who donate financially to our church’s premier mission, the Peace Dale Dinner Table would not exist. Thank you for your continued generous support.
