August First Foundations Article

 

The first Centerpoint Meal of the Fall is just around the corner!

As we start a new school calendar year and children, youth and adult programs restart, I am excited to meet more church members and to help provide an opportunity for you to enjoy good food and fellowship!

Price Increase:

Beginning with the August 28 meal, there will be a few changes. Due to the ever increasing cost of food and the desire to continue to provide healthy, wholesome meals, the cost of Wednesday dinners will be $6.00 for adults, $4.00 for children 12 and under, and little ones (3 and under) are free. There will be a $20.00 cap for families (immediate family members only).

 

Reservations: If you would like to be placed on the permanent reservation list, please send me an email or call the church office. Please do not forget to cancel your reservation if there is a week that you can not come. For weekly reservations, you may email me, call the church office, or sign up in your Sunday school class. Reservations need to be made by noon on Monday prior to the Wednesday meal. Please specify number of adults and number of children. (jgilbert@fbcraleigh.org)

 

Serving Line : The main buffet line will continue to open at 5pm. I hope to have volunteers helping with the buffet line to make the line run quickly and smoothly.

Children’s menu: Children are encouraged to eat from the buffet line when their palettes are willing! As an alternate choice, there will be a bag supper that can be quickly grabbed. It will accommodate toddlers and older kids (12 and under) who do not care to eat from the buffet. When making your reservations, please specify if your child would like a bag supper. (Bag supper will contain a meal similar to the following: Homemade chicken tenders, applesauce or fresh fruit, mac and cheese)

 

Special Dietary Needs: Please do let me know these! I will do my best to accommodate any restrictions you may have. Advance notice is helpful (jgilbert@fbcraleigh.org)

 

Menus: These will be posted 2-4 weeks out in First Foundations as well as on my website ( ingoodtastecooks.com ~ Click on tab labeled Food and Faith at FBC )
