Thankfully, several area churches in Flagler County host a weekly Community Dinner to provide food, fellowship, and comfort to those in need. At each dinner, guests are welcomed with smiles and open arms, and friendships are easily formed amongst the “regulars,” who hold a common bond.
Sometimes local businesses and members of the community donate clothing, food, and toiletries for distribution at the dinner. The Sheltering Tree has a presence prior to the Wednesday Soul Cafe Dinner, (the office is open from 10:00 AM – 2:00PM) and is also available on the first Saturday of each month at the Palm Coast United Methodist Church at 4:00 PM, prior to their Community Dinner.
