This is the time of year when many are giving thanks – thanks for families, homes, comfort and having enough to eat. We appreciate the many blessings that life has bestowed upon us.
For many in our midst, those blessings are emptier and elusive and becoming more so every day. And while we may want to imagine that there aren’t people in need here in Lexington, the truth is that hunger and social isolation are daily realities for many in and around Lexington.
This year, a group of concerned Lexingtonians set out to help address the needs of those at the margins of life in our town, by establishing a free, weekly dinner open to anyone who might benefit from a nutritious meal and companionship. Thank you for being a part of this new, not-for-profit organization, Lex Eat Together!
In October, as we began offering a weekly meal every Wednesday evening at the Church of Our Redeemer in the heart of Lexington, it became clear just how much this dinner is needed. In our first 6 weeks, we served over 200 meals to guests, offering a warm welcome and a hot meal to anyone who came to join us.
With the help of an amazing group of volunteer cooks, servers, setup and cleanup teams (Thank you!), we’ve provided all who come with food to eat and fellowship to share.
During this time of thankfulness, we ask for your help to support Lex Eat Together as we continue our work and serve those in our community who benefit. We are excited about the year to come, and hope you’ll please consider making a tax-deductible contribution to Lex Eat Together.
