It’s said that the best things in life are free, and that’s what a Terre Haute church is offering to anyone through faith.
Once a month, Terre Haute Centenary United Methodist Church opens its doors for a free lunch program. It’s called 55-1 Community Kitchen.
And it’s from the book of Isaiah, Chapter 55, Verse 1 which says, “you who have no money–come an drink…and eat.”
The first 55-1 Community Kitchen opened in January and served 38 people including workers. And coordinators says the numbers increased slightly in February and March.
“We’re beginning to see a trend that probably half of those are students between classes or done with classes or whatever and they’re by our building and we have people at the door inviting them to come in and share in a meal for free,” says Melvin Camp of Centenary United Methodist Church.
Pastor Camp says this program operates strictly on faith with donations funding the food.
If you’d like to stop in for lunch, just head to Terre Haute Centenary United Methodist Church.
It’s located at 301 North 7th Street. Food is served from 11:00 AM to 1:30 PM on the fourth Monday of each month.
And again, lunch is free and open to anyone who wants to come.
