Faith Kitchen: Come Help Serve and Prepare Meals

Join members of Faith Lutheran Church, Temple Beth Shalom, and the Cambridge community at large  and volunteer to prepare meals.

For the past few years, the shul’s neighbor, Faith Lutheran Church has been running a Faith Kitchen, a community meal program sponsored by the church and staffed by volunteers. Now, the shul along with the mosque have been invited to join in an interfaith effort of providing meals to the community. Faith Kitchen currently provides a free bi-monthly meal open to all who wish to join. Guests come for a variety of reasons: hunger, loneliness, a chance to get out of the house, an opportunity to meet old friends and make new ones, an opportunity to serve others. The guiding principle is quite simple: we are a community of individuals who come together to be with one another and to share our lives with one another in the preparation and enjoyment of a wholesome and inexpensive meal. In the past year, Faith Kitchen expanded from one meal per month to two and fed roughly 1100 at a cost of about 78 cents per person. Meals are served on the second and last Tuesday of each month.

Volunteers of all ages are welcome to come to the church, on the corner of Prospect and Broadway, anytime between 5:00 and 8:00 to help prepare, cook, serve and join in the meal.


Support the Eruv

The North Charles Community Eruv is an eruv around most of Cambridge and Somerville. They are always looking for volunteers to help with logistics and to check the eruv every week.
