As we negotiate the uncertainty of determining when it’s safe to gather together again, one of the things we think about is how the pandemic has changed what we do for fundraising. Oldtown has always been known as “the church with the suppers,” and that is something that will continue long into the future. However, some things about how we do our suppers will need to change. As we prepare for the day when once again our church kitchen will be filled with the smells of delicious food for our community, the safety of our guests will be an increased focus, and you can help with this.
If you’re interested in helping with our suppers, we offer the ability to get online training on safe food handling and preparation. Having these certifications will make our guests feel more comfortable when they are deciding whether to return. It’s also a great way to learn more about food safety at home with family and friends. There are training options available for free or minimal cost, and the church is willing to reimburse the cost of training upon successful completion. In this way, we can show everyone how we care for our neighbors by ensuring their safety when we invite them to share a meal with us.
If you are interested in helping with suppers when we restart them and learning more about food safety, email firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll let you know all the opportunities that are available. Thanks in advance for continuing to support your church as we all live together to reach out to our community and our world.
